Does anyone have any photos that demonstrate how to remove the 'A'-Pillar in a 2012 Chevy Cruze correctly without damage? I would like to route wires behind it.

pull from the top, if you remove the door seal you can see behind it and give it a good tug itll come out

If you pull on the door seal can you get the seal back to its original form? Is there any adhesive that keeps it in place?

there's no need to worry about the door seal. just grab the top of the pillar and pull. then unlatch the hanger by pressing the latch release. then pull up and out. if you look at the headliner removal thread that I posted you will see its extremely easy to remove. then reinstallation you just use your finger to get the seal back to where it was before. no adhesive.

That would be the smart thing to do. While it's unlikely to go off, the expense involved if it does isn't worth the risk.

Disconnecting the battery is no big deal. Just make sure the driver's door is closed when you reconnect (or you might be a message about the power steering).

About all that happens when you disconnect is that you'll have to run the window all the way down/up so the computer can re-learn that. That's it. No radio station reprogramming.
