How to remove and install an A-Pillar to install Gauge Pods.

Hard Top and Moon Roof GBody:
You start by standing outside your driver side door. Window down or door open. You pull the head liner metal trim towards you.The edge closes to you will want to flip down. Use your thumbs to do this. Now the metal Trim is removed.

T-top GBody:
Remove the sun visor. 3 screws. Note when re-installing the long part of the swivel triangle points towards the a-pillar.
Remove the above Visor plastic carefully. Pull away from the A-pillar & then slide from the T-top short center section. ( If this is already broken we do have new above the visor T-top plastic).
Mark new Gauge pod from old Gauge Pod. Top section must be cut off. This is what GM did also to the hard top a-pillar.

All GBody removal of A-Pillars.
The factory unit has 2 Phillip head screws. Remove the bottom and then the top. Slide up and out.
Once wires are ran up to a-pillar prepare to install your gauges.
Install gauges into your pillar pod.
Connect wiring.
Pull wire down as you slide the lower part of your a-pillar back in.



* When using heavy gauges, Hard line sending units such as temperature, Oil lines in copper, etc the gauges may have a tough time and want to pull the gauges away from the A-Pillar.
A) used velcro to new Gauge Pod.
B) Cut the the OEM center out to allow the lines to run thru. Glue the new Pod to the old a-pillar. Make sure you can still access the gauge mounts to remove.


ALL GBODY A-Pillar Installation

Depending on the amount of gauges you have your OEM holes may not line up.
Normally the OEM top hole will.
Simply locate the lower hole on your pod. Ensure no wires are in the way. You can run the Old screw back into the a-pillar sheet metal. It is hollow.
This will complete the a-pillar install. Re install the parts removed in reverse order whether it is a Hard Top;Moon roof or a T-top.

We hope this has been helpful.

We hope you enjoy our new A-pillar Gauge pods.

Thank you and we appreciate your business.
