Pillar post trim

Does anyone have any experience replacing the exterior pillar trim? On my 9th gen the clear coat has begun to peel and I'm looking for some replacements and how to replace them. i thought they were just applied with 3m and if they are then they're on there pretty good but they seem screwed on or something. Any info is appreciated, thanks!

My dad's 2015 is having the same issue on all the pillars. The last time I looked at, it appeared to just be held in place with screws.

I did not, i bought some black 3m stick on ones and i hate the shit out of them. They're not even polished black, its like a weird faded black but i just couldn't ever find the part number or anything else online. If you're able to find some id like to know where you get them! Good luck!

Good Job!

I am beginning to hate the applicators, brand new and streak using windex and even plain water, last night I washed the car and microfibered dry & still faint streaks.

My dad's have gotten so bad. All of them have like 20% clear on them. I had found the part numbers as posted. Will be ordering those for him soon. I may have them wrapped with x-pel paint protection film.

On my 8th gen, I removed the pillar trim, cleaned them and painted them with black Rust-Oleum truck bed coating spray. The finish is slightly textured, which hides fingerprints. I think they look pretty good, and they hold up well. If you want shiny glossy black, this is not the product for you.
