The A Pillar? Give me some of what you've been taking.

Or do you just mean the internal trim?

Re: A Pillar removal

If you don't have a curtain airbag it is just a case of pulling the door seal out of the way and gently releasing the 4? clips holding the trim with a flat bladed tool. With curtain airbag there is a bolt to remove as the trim is released. There's no mention of disconnecting battery or disabling airbag system. BETTER DOUBLE CHECK THOUGH

Re: A Pillar removal

r disconnect the battery and leave for 20 mins to be safe anyway, was just not sure how many bolts under cover there was.
