Wood trim cracks

I need to take off my wood trim inside my 328ci but it has like 10 vertical cracks. If I try to pry it off will it just fall apart?

Should not. There is support behind the wood, but yours still could fall apart if it is too far gone.

I've never had trim fall apart on me. From what I can tell some of it has metal in it. The dash clips will break though.

Is the cracking just the varnish on the surface?

As said it will not fall apart has a metal backing

my drivers door wood piece on my 330ci [2001] is cracking bad enough to feel with my fingernail.
I bought some replacements from the classifieds and have found a place to hydrodip all the interior pieces plus the lower steering wheel trim. the tan [hellbiege] lower trim of the door handles is also peeling off, does anybody have a good suggestion to redo that area? I have thought about some vinyl paint maybe ? or?

thanks
