Thanks for all of the replies. Will the replacement pillar come with the fabric attached and clean?
To each his own.But plastic looks cheap and crappy. The A-pillar is literally the only part of the interior that you normally see when driving, it'd be nice to keep it nice looking.
I stripped the fabric of a pillar once to make a pillar pod for someone. Sucked. Do. Not. Recommend!Perfect timing, I need to do this as well. Has any body just stripped off the fabric and painted to match? Is that even an option? At 60.00 a pop for new I might try this.
Do you live near a pick and pull junkyard? Quickest and cheapest way to get them.So where do I find the part number for the plastic pillars?
100% agree on this one, too! After installing a pair of clean plastic trims, I've wondered why Volvo even bothered with the fabric one. Fabric may look nice when new but it attracts dust and is harder to clean, hence looks dirty over time.To each his own.
I actually think it looks cleaner and more refined and blends better with the dash, but that's my opinion
