What's up, guys? I'm Andy from 1A Auto. In this video I'm going to show you how to remove the A pillar on this 2015 Chevy Silverado. If you need parts for your vehicle, click the link in the description and head over to 1AAuto.com.

I need a pocket screwdriver, and there's two little covers right here. I'm going to pop these off here and over here. I'll take the two bolts out with a 10-millimeter socket extension and a ratchet. Now, with those bolts out, I can just grab the A pillar and just slide it out like that. There is a clip that's held in right there. Then I'm going to do the same with the other side.

I'm just going to take this panel and slide it down below. There's a slot, and it goes into the panel down here. Then line that up and lock it in place. The weatherstripping--you need to just put something. You can use a screwdriver. I'm just using a trim tool. Just peel this out. You can use your fingers, too. That's good.

Now, I'm going to take the two bolts and use a 10-millimeter socket and the extension and get them started first. Now, I'll use the ratchet to tighten those two bolts up. Just snug those up, and I'll take these covers and install the covers like that and do the same for the other side.
