This is where I go to look at parts diagrams. If anything, removing the A-Pillar may just require prying on it. Obviously a 08 Camry is a very different car but what I found out on mine is that the A-Pillar is just the metal frame of the Camry. The actual airbag part is more near your head and less than three inches on the A-Piller. Good luck!

Welcome to the site ZZZ1.


I am not sure about the Corolla, but:


On the '09 Camry you un-hook a clip that holds the trim onto the pillar, it is angled so a bit of a pain
On the '15 4Runner you pop off the SRS badge on the trim and then remove the bolt that holds the trim to the pillar


You may have something along those lines

So far i see that it has some kind of blank Y shaped clip that lets it open a little but doesn't release it and 1 generic trim tab i havn't gotten the bottom part open to see whats going on there



also here is the diagram

Pull down your weatherstrip trim at the a pillar. There's around 3-4 clips attached to the pillar cover. It will take some patience since you have an airbag. The furthest clip is above the dashboard.

Also reach thru the gap on the windshield side. Use extra care as not to damage the glass. Use a plastic trim tool if handy.

I have tried removing mine, without any success. You can remove it with some force, but risk breaking the slots in the trim cover for the clips.
