On my 2002 CTD the A pillar is held in with snap thingies. One, maybe 2 (don't recall now) there metal pronged arrow headed shaped springs that push into a receptacle. They hold the pillar vrey tightly. You might have to pull hard to free your. If you feel the pillar giving, then you probably have the same spring clips (for lack of the proper term)
There will be a little slack in the speaker leads, and there is a connector for the tweeter if you need to remove the pillar.

Just pry it out slowly and carefully. It'll eventually pop off.
If you have an "O-Sh!t" grip, you need to pop the little rubber covers off of it and unscrew it, then the A-pillar pops off. If not, it just pops off, it is held on with tight metal clips. What you can do is pull the weather stripping away and reach in behind it to pop it off.
