Default Removing A-pillar and front seat??

I will possibly be removing my a-pillars in my 99 ram to replace the tweeters soon. I have only glanced intot he truck but I didn't really see exactly how they come out.

Anyone done this?

Also, is the drivers front seat just bolted on the floor with 4 bolts or is it attached to the center console?

My A-pillar didn't have the tweeter, but mine just pulled off. Takes a little force, but it is just clips holding it on.

I think the drivers side on mine just pulls off and the passenger side has 2 bolts through the grab handle that you have to take out. I'm thinking they are torx screws. Then I think it comes off. Don't hold me too it but I think that's how mine came off. I do have the tweeters btw. They just snap out once you get it off. Oh, once you get it unsnapped you have to disconnect a plug before taking it completely off. This plug is for the tweeter. Be careful not to break the tabs as I've broken some on mine but it still stays up there fine.

You have 3 screws on the door panels and then it poops off
you take out the four bolts holding the seat and unplug your seatbelt wiring ,seat motor etc

Be gentle when reinstalling the a-pillar piece, the plastic can be brittle on an older truck. I broke one putting mine back in. I wasen't getting rough, but it cracked anyway.

Flip the crack piece over and use a soldering gun to melt the pastic back together
