To remove the moldings on the A-pillars, pull at the top of the pillar towards you. The retainers are at the top part of the trim. There should be a metal retainer holding the trim to the truck. After you get the upper part loose, the lower part pulss up to get past the dash. Make sure you unplug the speaker before pulling up on the trim.
