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
To begin, you will need to remove the rear seat base. Follow our tutorial here.
Once the seat has been removed, release the clip as circled by pushing upwards with your trim removal tool.
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.
