The left and right A-pillars are the roof suports that run along each side of the windshield. Their trim cover clips may not have been manufactured correctly and one or both trim covers may come loose if the side head protection airbags are deployed. These loose trim pieces could injure the front seat occupants. Dealers will inspect the middle clip of each of the left and right A-pillar covers and replace them as necessary.
