This tutorial will show you how to remove the front and rear sill trims on a MK7 Golf. These typically need to be removed when running wiring for additional accessories, or a sound system. The process is pretty simple, but care needs to be taken to not break or damage trims.
- Trim Removal Tools
Before completely removing the trim, you will need to disconnect the LED trim lighting (if fitted) which is connected by a long ribbon cable. There is a connector at the B-Pillar base which needs to be gently disconnected.
At the base of the seatbelt you will find a small slit in the trim, once unclipped you can slide the seatbelt out from the trim.
The trim is now completely free, and can be removed through the rear door.
