I've been searching what the name of this part is but have had no luck. It is located on the passengers side and running alongside the front windshield. It is also covered in Alcantara. There are some unknown wires exposed and trapped beneath. They're quite thick but I would like to put them back in their place. Could somebody direct me? :1zhelp:

Are you able to take a picture?

Are you talking about the A-pillar cover? If I remember correctly there is a hex screw underneath the ABS logo at the top. Once that's out you can remove it fairly easily.

I think it is the A-pillar cover and it has an HPS logo atop. I'm not sure if ABS and HPS the same. Would you know if I'd have to worry about an airbag or any other danger?


This isn't my car. Sixth picture down:

Yeah, HPS is right. There's only one plastic logo at the top of the cover in any event :)
You don't need to worry about setting off the airbag taking off the cover.

Thank you for the info!
