oh and the second nut is located at the bottom, sorry forgot to put the arrow...
what you may want to do actually (maybe this is what you did, but i couldn't comprehend it)

Pull the back side panel (where your armrests are) out at the bottom of the B-Pillar (where your seatbelt goes into.) It's only a couple of snaps...just give it a good yank to pull the panel away. Pulling this rear panel out a few inches allows you to access 2 push rivits at the bottom of the B-Pillar (previously hidden by the rear side panel). Pulling the 2 push rivits at the bottom of the B-Pillar allow you to simply slide the pillar out of the way, since the top of the B-Pillar has slots that slide into the metal clips fastened to the backside of the head liner.

You just slide the B-pillar down to unlatch it and this way you don't have to worry about breaking anything.
