Removing sunshade and A-pillar cover/moulding

I have to remove the A-pillar cover today as some part of the rubberized material has loosened up and needed to be glued back (using Gorilla glue) and thought of posting a simple DIY.

So here are the photos and some attached comments.


1.




2.






3.







Close-up of connector (this supplies power to the vanity light).






Close-up of anchor at top of A-pillar:







Addendum: this piece I snapped off while trying to slide the A-pillar cover back on. No biggie, reassembly is easier without it and the A-pillar cover holds up fine



#2 and #3 may be reversed.
Assembly is the reverse of the above. Hope y'all find this helpful

Thank you so much for the informatión!

I just buy the pillar A (see Photo) with the light to retrofit courtesy light in the sunshade, but also I have to change the sunshade to make apropiate contact to power on - off the light.

Somebody can tell me wich P/N I need?

Best regards!

Unfortunately these are hosted on photobucket.
We had a work around, but PB have now worked out how to block that.

Although they are blurry (as above), if you right click on the blurry pic and "open in "new window (computer) or tab (tablet), it's as clear as it should be
.
You can also download it to your computer for clear viewing as well.

I just did it on my tablet and it's all good. This is the first blurry pic in Eddy's post. And now the rest of them from that post.

No can do. Those re- posted pics are not accessible, I guess because they are from a different time? Dunno but they're stock generic PB pics not SLK pics.

I might have some broomstick pics saved elsewhere but they're not available to me at this point in time. Definitely don't have the battery pics.

My apologies. None of the images were stored in the old digital camera and they were uploaded to PB.
