Pull the A-pillar trim inwards along the roof frame and windscreen frame. The A-pillar trim as of MY2000 is characterized by a changed curvature and the notch for the deformation element.

Before installation, check that the deformation element is seated properly. Check sheetmetal clips and replace if necessary. Insert the A-pillar trim at the side of the windscreen frame (transition point to dashboard), clip in the A-pillar trim along the roof frame.
