Just wanted to say thanks for this thread. It helped me remove the A pillar today when replacing my Bluetooth Mic.
@Blasirl, not sure if you ever figured this out but I did today.

I have circled the clip you need to pull and then you slide the whole clip out. Came out pretty easy for me.

Can some of these steps be skipped? I am needing to replace the antenna base & thus the entire headliner wouldn't need to come out (I hope).

If you remove the rear side trim, rear headliner clips and rear grab handles, you should be able to drop it low enough to access the antenna.
