I bought a new car radio with a cable connected microphone. Now I need to hide the cable in the A-pillar and then connect it to the behind of the radio.

Does anyone know how to remove the A-pillar and also the dashboard in a Mercedes SLK 200? (R171)

I can't advise you on how to remove the dashboard since it tends to be dependant on the car and I'm not 100% familiar with your car, but the A-pillar trims are clipped in and will pop off with a bit of force. Get a flathead screw driver in the seam and pop it out, there will be a few clips so you'll have to pop it off of.

If you are going to fit the microphone in the roof light and you don’t make this clear then there may be another method.

I used a “pull cord”, actually a truck speedo cable as it is long.

It is possible, on some cars, to feed the pull cord from the centre lamp; across the roof; and down the A pillar to be found under the dash.

This takes patience and some skill (gained by fitting many roof aerials...), also a small (10 degree) bend on the last inch of the pull cord can help turn corners...
