    Any tips on the removal. Need to route my microphone wire up and over. I'm assuming it will clip off but is there a good place to start the process

    cheers

    you ll need to remove the grab handle above the driver to remove the a pillar trim itself
    2 screws which are behind 2 locking plastic tabs on the handle itself
    then lift the a pillar upwards and into the vehicle

    Can you not just pull back the rubber seal and poke the wire under the trim that way?

    There is a screw under the cover that says Airbag and then remove the 2 screws holding the grab handle and also remove the sunvisor and then pull it off

    The screws are going to be Torx 20 and / or Torx 25 size.

    Don't run it up behind the rubber seal, run the cable to the back of the dash (access to the fuse panel for feeding it up/down) and tuck the cable behind the A pillar edge closest to the screen. Takes no more than 5 minutes without the need to remove the pillar

    Glad you asked this as this is exactly what I need to do! After removing the screws and pulling it off - theres no chance of the airbag going off is there??

    After messing around for a while I've sited the microphone on the cluster it fits snug on the little ledge just under the PRNDS. Looks nice and sounds ok too from what people tell me anyway

    Cheers
