2016 Kia Optima
Great Job Munky!! Did you say I could drop my car off and you would install mine for me....LoL
Don't know the official name for it, sorry. We didn't get a replacement, no.Munky
Nice write up! Only wish it was up before I installed my canbus system. I agree, this is not a job for a weekend tinker, unless you have some automotive wiring knowledge. After installing, mine works like a charm.
Did you try to get this gray safety clip that you cut when removing the A Pillar cover at the dealer? (IMG1 & IMG2)
I did get mine removed, but it was not reuseable when reinstalling the trim cover. I did leave it off for now.
If you did try, were you able to get it. And what was the official name for it.
There are two blue circular clips holding the pillar cover on, seen in IMG 02, and a grey retaining clip that stops it from flying off in case of airbag deployment.So, if you can't remove the pillar cover without cutting these clips, how do you get to the clips, to cut them in the first place? :\
Also, if the clips are destroyed, what is holding the cover on?
CorrectThe clip they are referring to I believe is the clip that holds the cover from flying if that airbag goes off. The other clips stay intact that hold the cover back on.
Too time consuming for a video. It'd be like watching two of the three Lord of the Rings movies beck to back! HahaAny video of this yet?
I'd guess by what people have said, you'd be looking at a full afternoon easywhat have i gotten myself into... lol. i wonder how long it would take a professional to install this. my optima is my only car so i cant really be without it..

Video of the installation, or of the product functions?Any video of this yet?
A professional shop should be able to complete the install in about 4-6 hours. Really depends on the experience of the installer.what have i gotten myself into... lol. i wonder how long it would take a professional to install this. my optima is my only car so i cant really be without it..
