Removing the driverside a pillar trim
« on: August 03, 2018, 09:57:59 PM »
Hopefully an easy one.....

Before I go and just yank it off, is there any recommendations for removal of the driver's side a pillar trim, I have a dash cam and dab Ariel to fit to the windscreen tomorrow and both need routing up to the windscreen.

I see the end panel in the dash just unclips and gives plenty of access but I want to hide the wires behind the trim and then under the leading edge of the headlining......

When I got mine it had a hands free kit with mic on drivers side,didnít need to remove trim to remove the mic just pulled the seal back and wire was pushed in and seal out back over,at the top it was tucked down under the trim between that and headlining and then tucked under head lining at top edge of the screen.

However if you want to take trim off itís easy enough just remove the dash pieces and pull trim off.

I have the power cable for the dash cam, the mic for the head unit Bluetooth and the dab Ariel. The latter is a thick wire and I need to get to some metal to earth it behind the trim so it's gotta come off. Looks easy enough though. Not quite sure how the trim piece at the bottom comes off, assume I'm just pulling it upwards, will find out tomorrow!

Yes the bottom piece just pulled up and I clipped.

I see why you need to take it off now as thatís a bit too much wiring to push between.
