  • Small prying device
  • Philips screwdriver


Step 1

Remove padded seat end trim.

Step 2

Loosen or remove overlapping lower door trim.

Step 4

Remove the retainer pin at the bottom of the C-pillar.  This is a two-piece retainer.  Remove the top part of the pin first, then the lower.  The top part of the clip looks like a philips screw, but it is not – it will just spin & spin.  A prying tool like the one shown below is very helpful, though a small flathead screwdriver could work, too.

Get the prying tool in between the two parts of the head of the retainer, as shown below.  2nd picture shows the inner pin removed.

Step 5

Unclip trim carefully.  You will likely break off some clips, unfortunately.  To minimize this, use a small prying tool and pry the trim outward as near to the clips as possible.  Sadly, some clips will likely still break.
