Painting Headliner and Pillars

Heres the main question....
How do you remove the side pillars to paint them without having the airbags go off?

Second question...
How do you remove the head liner on a coupe? 05 if you need to be that specific but I think they are all the same.

I'm getting ride of the stupid tan and black color combo that makes no sense at all and I would rather not have an airbag blow up in my face!!

Well, if you really want to be careful, disconnect the battery. They can't blow up then.

Headliner Colour?
here's the thread
theres a link to another thread with tear down details (note: if you put a little thought and effort into it you don't have to cut the black piece on the rear pillars, you'll know what I mean when you get to it)


Make it pretty, and she'll think it's fast.

I thought that might be the best way, I was more curious I guess if the airbag was attached to the pillar

no problem

also this:
The easiest way is to take the whole sunroof out. 4 bolts hold the glass. 4 drainage lines to disconnect and 4 or 5 bolts hold the whole sunroof assembly. Take it out of the car and u will see the stopper on the otherside.
