    Hi all,

    i’m looking to install a dashcam into my A6 Avant C8 but am totally stumped how to remove or at least prise open the “A” pillar. With my old A6 C7 you undid a screw and the rest was easy, but on the C8 there is no retaining screw!

    Any pointers gratefully received.

    Gavin

    From looking a parts diagram for the C8, unfortunately the link I had no longer works, the A Pillar is held in place by 2 springs in the upper half of the trim so a trim removal tool should be all you require. Best to disconnect the battery first as you do not want to ignite the airbag in the pillar by accident
