Step 3 - A Pillar Trim
Step 3 - Remove A pillar trim
Probably the most difficult part of the install is removing this trim.
SINCE THE AIRBAG IS UNDER THIS TRIM, YOU MIGHT WANT TO REMOVE POWER BEFORE CONTINUING
First, remove the airbag cap covering the single torx bolt holding the trim to the car. Using a small pick to carefully get under the cover, gently lift until you can squeeze the two tabs and lift off.
Next, Unbolt the torx bolt. It is held with locktite blue so it will take a little effort to unscrew.
Now, two tabs are holding the pillar to the car, so pulling the pillar toward the rear of the car, and up, while wiggling will eventually loosen the pillar for removal. (SHORTCUT: Just pull the trim away from the pillar, removing the trim clips still attached to the pillar trim.)
