F20 A Pillar trim removal guide

Couldn't find much showing me how to remove the A pillars on my F20 so here it is.

Held in in three places A, B ,C
  1. Pull out the door rubber from around the trim piece
  2. Pull top of A pillar towards the opposite side of the car.
    The top of the A pillar will pop out about 1/2 inch. This frees up the plastic locator plug at A but does not get the metal plug at A out, nor B nor C
  3. In line with the A pillar, pull trim up away from the dash.
    The metal plug at A should slide up ~1 inch then come free.
    The white plugs at B and C should come out of the trim piece and stay in the frame.

Refitting is just removing the white plugs B,C from the frame and putting them into the trim.
  1. In line with A pillar, slide downwards into position so that the feet at the base of the trim locate into the dash.
  2. Check plugs ABC are lined up
  3. Bash it into place
  4. Refit door rubber
