2011 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport SE: DIY A-pillar Trim Fix

April 18, 2011


The Outlander Sport's loose A pillar trim piece was bugging me so I took a closer look. Seems that nothing was actually broken but rather a fastener somehow freed itself. The trim piece has a semicircular hook of sorts that must be pushed upwards to engage the fastener on the inner part of the A pillar. So I carefully lined the hook up, pressed the trim piece firmly towards the A pillar (making sure the rubber seal didn't get caught within) and then gave it a solid, but not all-out thump with my hand to engage the fastener. Done deal.
