GT B-Pillar Trim removal

Hi guys.
I'm a new GT owner and new to the forum!

I've just replaced the wooden trim inserts in doors and dash and need to complete the job with the insert in the B pillar. Has anyone got any experience or manuals for removing interior B Pillar trim?

Looks like there's potential for broken clips and tears if I go wading in alone!

Thx...

Adrian.

Adrian, I can't help you eith your question as tackling trim anywhere in any car would get me to the tears stage in no time. I can however congratulate you on becoming a GT owner and an F07 forum member. Welcome aboard!

LOL... Trim on dashboard and all four doors is a piece of cake. Literally pulled them off (gently) with fingernails and a wooden lollipop stick! - I couldn't wait for the plastic trim tools to arrive! The only piece of trim that looks to be tricky is the B-pillar...

Thx for welcome though
