Removing and replacing a car door seal

I have a 2002 Honda Civic and I want to remove the lower rubber seal on the front passenger door. Is there a way to do this without damaging it?

Some rust is starting to bubble beneath the seal and below it, so I want to remove the seal before I sand the rust down and paint it over. The seal is attached to the door by several plugs. I tried removing one of the plugs with a pair of pliers, but in the process almost tore the plug in half. Is there another way to remove the seal?
It may be that the rubber in the plug is simply old, and there is no way to remove the seal without damaging it. If so, where should I buy a replacement for it?
