exterior window /pillar trim replacement

I'm not sure the proper name for the trim piece but it's the exterior black metal trim on the B pillar.
I bought my car used and it has a dent on the trim piece so I would like to replace it. Has anyone done this?

You going to have to remove the rubber trim. Kind of like this video minus the screws. Ours doesn't have screws.

We don't have your VIN (which makes it much easier to look up parts that are specific to the vehicle that needs it) so here's 3 of my favorite online part database sites...feel free to enter the last 7 digits of your VIN and pull up the diagram & part number index...look for it in the VEHICLE TRIM category:
  1. https://www.realoem.com/bmw/enUS/select
  2. http://bmwfans.info/parts-catalog/
  3. https://bimmercat.com

I just did this a few weeks ago, replaced the front drivers side exterior pillar. They do indeed have 2 screws. I used the attached PDF file from the first post in this thread.

https://www.bimmerfest.com/forums/sh...d.php?t=904829

It was bought from https://www.getbmwparts.com/search?s..._id=&page_url=

If you have any questions on how to replace it just let me know, the documentation in this thread though is pretty spot on.
