Request

Is there a procedure available for replacing the B-pillar reinforcement without removing the roof?

Response

Chevrolet has a procedure for replacing the B-pillar reinforcement. he procedures can be found at www.acdelcotds.com

Per the 2014 Silverado body repair information: “Note: This procedure was developed to allow access for the complete replacement of the center pillar outer panel reinforcement without removing the roof panel. There are sectioning procedures available for various locations of the body side outer panel. The location should be chosen based on the extent of the damage to the vehicle and other inner reinforcements that need to be replaced. Sectioning should be performed only in the recommended areas. Failure to do so may compromise the structural integrity of the vehicle. Refer to other service procedures for additional sectioning locations. This procedure shows a crew cab, the extended cab is similar.“
