    Easiest solution would be to use a small saw or serrated knife and carefully cut through the grid where it attaches to the perimeter molding. You can try to remove the whole grid then replace the side molding with wood molding.

    It all depends on the door. A few years ago I had doors I wanted to remove the grid from but it was attached to the window and I would have had to replace the whole window part of the door with a new gridless window. I ended up painting the grid because it had yellowed badly and it was so ugly. Eventually I got new doors with the grid inside the windows to make cleaning easier. I hope that those grids don't yellow.
