Default Pillar removal and reset

Hi all,

My front drivers side pillar is flapping around and won't stay in the set position. It seems to be the washer that the one of the clips goes into (at the very bottom of the pillar) has corroded.

So firstly I am trying to take it off - but after reading the removal of windscreen instructions I see:

21. REMOVE FRONT BODY PILLAR ASSY OUTER RH

a) Remove the nut.

I can't see a nut and if it's under the pillar how do I access it?

And then

34: INSTALL FRONT BODY PILLAR ASSY OUTER RH

a) Exchange the clip with a new one

What clip is this referring to and what is the part number.

Many thanks.

i had issue with my pillar.. it has multiple clips to hold it in place and it is screwed in at the top.. you will need to order those clips from the dealer.. for small pieces of plastic they aren't cheap. If you're on the road i suggest using a good tape to tape it down or some 3M/Scotch extreme 2 sided tape rated at about 15-25lbs to hold it in place
