Hi, I was wondering if anyone here has the part number for the little metal clip that holds the top of the a-pillar. After installing my 42dd, i need a new one. Thanks.

does it have a-pillar airbags? from what i understand w/o that clip, the a-pillar becomes a dangerous projectile when the airbag deploys.
oh well, guess i'll just go down to the dealership tomorrow. I'll post up a part number when that happens.

Re: A-Pillar Clip (Black Magic VW)

In the Bentley manual (at least the version I have - just bought it new recently), there is a note on the page that covers the A-pillar trim removal and installation. It says that the clip is longer a serviceable item, and you must buy a whole new A-pillar trim piece (new clip will come with it).
Sorry but I don't have the part # for the trim piece.
Just call a dealer and ask about it.

The clip is not available seperately anymore you have to purchase the whole a-piller. I think I paid less than $35 for the whole piller so it's not too expensive.
