    Carbon Fibre B Pillar.... problems with removal

    Guys,

    Does anyone know how to remove the B pillar covers? I want to install the Carbon Fiber ones from OSIR but I have no idea how to remove the old ones and I don't want to break anything...

    It seem like that there is a plastic cover on the bottom of the metal cover but I am afraid to pry that off... any one with the experience of doing this?

    BTW I have a 5dr Sportsback.

    Thanks in advance!

    Pry away I'd say - more than likely clipped in but remove the inside trim from behind the pillar and see if there are any screws

    or, if you have the OSIR ones there, check to see how they would be attached and work it out!

    Thanks Boydie... I did not get the OSIR ones eventually and I went the cheap route (blame this on the bad economy) of using a "faux" carbon cover sheet but with amazing results... More pics later...
