Made a mistake when removing A-Pillar Trim


Recommended Posts

I got a 01' C2 and when I was trying to open up the A-Pillar trim and the air vent trim to investigate the rattle noise, I'm not sure how but one of the clips that hold the A-Pillar trim dropped into the hole where the clips clip on. I could hear the clip dropped into car's body.

I'm wonder if there is a way to get the clip out as I do not want to add another rattling source to my car :(

Thanks in advance.

If its accessible, magnet on the end of a wire? You'll need something rigid so it doesn't stick to other things I suppose.

I would try and use a magnetic part retreiver that has a magnet on the end of a telescoping shaft like an old auto antenna. I have one and think I got it at Harbor tools, but I'm sure sears auto would have them as well as NAPA.

Good luck!! demosan :cheers:

Get another clip and put back together, Out of sight out of mind I say.
