Hi all,

Anyone have any idea how to remove/replace the exterior B pillar trims on the door?

    Hi all,

    In answer to my own question, easy to remove when you know how.

    Put window all the way down, pull the internal window seal inwards away from the rear of the door, (it simply pushes on/off)
    Then pull the external seal in the same manner, once it has come away slightly, slide it up out of the door.
    This will reveal 3X T20 torx screws holding the trim to the door.
    Remove these (careful not to drop them into the door)
    Slide the exterior trim rear wards and outwards to free it from the door, the last little bit is behind the weatherstrip, slide it up and it’s out.

    To refit do the same in reverse
