Pillar Trim
 
4 Attachment(s)
So I was driving back from South Carolina yesterday when I heard a loud pop. I looked over and saw my pillar trim flapping in the wind through my passenger side window.

Pulled off and took a look to find 3 clips had snapped. In case you have never had the pleasure of driving minus this trim it is amazing how much wind noise it creates. It's like you left a window open.

So today I got a chance to mess with it and I went to advance auto and picked up some clips that looked close. I had to trim them just a bit and they were a tight fit in the trim piece, but they got the job done.

Now it looks better and more importantly its quiet inside again.

I replaced some of those clips with near fits too, last week. I added new rubber washers to prevent water in the A pillar and replaced the patch for the lower peg. There's a TSB on it. "LA501-006 A pillar water leak"

Question.. I just had the same problem on my LR4.. I was told to replace the clips only..but noticed that there is a adhesive patch.. I was thinking of using JB Weld on it to re-seal it tight.. with only the clips..I can still hear it being slightly loose.

jb weld would be a fairly permanent solution I guess. I didn't see any good spot for that to be honest
