How to remove plastic pillar cover, Passenger side

Post by coppens1 » Fri Jul 09, 2021 8:31 am

Dear fellow Vibe owners, I need to remove the plastic pillar cover, on the front Passenger side of my 05 Vibe, to look at a leak there. How do I do it? Does it just pop off? Do I use a screw driver? Please provide details, including a photo, if possible. JC

Yes, it just pops of. It may be tight, but it is held in with plastic "christmas tree" type push pins. I just pull the rubber door seal loose and start wiggling the panel as I pull and it pops right off. If there is a leak you really should seal it on the outside of the car.
