      Hi all,

          Was wondering if someone had experience with the replacement of the exterior (aluminium?) part of

      the right A pillar. Any difficulty? Tha actual one is a bit dammaged and I’d like to replace it.

           Thank you.

      Hi Guy,

      From memory the trim on the “A” pillar is riveted in place, so you will have to drill out the rivets to remove the trim. I used small stainless steel screws when I put mine back together which worked out pretty well!

      hi Guy Roelandts

      Are you referring to the Chrome Windscreen surround ?   If so, why didn’t you mention it before I came over to Belgium last week – I’ve got a spare I could have brought over for you !!

      As David Wardale ‍ says, these are riveted in place – they are easily drilled out and replaced by a small screw.  What you do need to be careful of is fitting, to make sure you don’t put a bend in it as you won’t get a crease out.

      Hi Laurence,

      Sorry I didn’t mention it before, I didn’t know you had spares available … now I know and will surely contact you before I try to source

      them from other locations. As I didn’t buy it yet, maybe I could wait till you come over again in the spring/summer period. I am not in a

      hurry to have it replaced anyway.

      And thanks to you and David on the comments on how they are fitted and how to remove them. I know we have to be careful with those

      type of parts, having replaced some of the same type on my TR4.

      Regards,

      Guy
