B pillar trim fitting
« on: May 08, 2015, 10:55:39 PM »
Anyone know know to fit the 'b' pillar trims without breaking anything.

Can't see anything in the Haynes manual about it.

They are tricky

They are slid into metal guides on each side and from memory the screws holding the guides are hiden under the plastic trim

Pull the door seals away from the apperture either side and then try to slide the trim as high up as you can as well as pushing it towards the front or rear of the car and the side closes to the opposite way you are pushing will normally come free



If you can get the
