Default A-Pillar Molding...... PN Needed

So I go out to my car this morning, get inside, and notice my a-pillar molding is sitting on my dash, with the wires running up my a-pillar exposed.

My first thoughts were.... oh my god... someone broke in my car... but I quickly realized my stereo was still there, and my money etc etc... no other damage.

Turns out the molding holding the clips broke (very odd cause they were fine last night).
I'm pissed.... it'* very odd... but at least I wasn't broken into.

Anyways.... what'* the PN for the inside molding of the a-pillar....
I'm thinking it'* GM PART # 16656855

Can anyone confirm?

doh.... keep forgetting I've got 2 cars...... the 97...

and the only # molded into the piece that 'could' be the PN is.... 25541919
There is a sticker on it with 22897319 ... looks like an old price sticker or something.

Hey both of my pillars are broken just like yours, but i had excellent results glueing those channels back on. In fact, thats the only car part i've ever had luck glueing.

(assuming 97 pillars are like 93)

Part number will vary with color. Magic Book won't show them all.
