When you open the door and look at the part of the exterior a-pillar that was concealed with the door closed you will see three plugs. Taka a punch and punch out the center of each of these plugs. That will release that part of the pillar. There are three metal clips that secure plastic studs into the outer side of the pillar. These are a little trickier to release as you have to gently pry the pillar out and forward to release the metal clips and studs. These are what usually break. Easy does it.

Took a quick look agt my truck this morning... seems like i can tuck the wires underneath the A pillar cover without having to remove it... if u slighty pull on the plastic cover seems like there is enough gap between the windshield and the plastic rubber molding... might require patience and maybe to run the wires one at a time.... will let u guys know how it works out..
