    hi m8

    yeah p*ss easy m8,here goes

    just before you attemt it make sure you have new rivets so you can
    replace them as you wont be able to salvage the centre pins for the old
    rivets.

    how to remove

    open front/rear door at 1 side at a time and pull off the rubber strip along the inner of the
    door sill,then were the rubber strip was,behind it push through the centre
    pin of the rivets all the way along,then underneath the sill you will see
    square recesses and again push the centre pin on the rivets in,then at the
    front end pull the skirt out and all the remaining of the rivets shud all pop
    out along wit the skirt then at the rear of the sill skirt its clipped on so just
    pull it and it`ll clip off,think thats it really.

    hi m8

    they are no more than 12p each and you will need 12 for each side

    yes m8 there is a specific part number as these rivets come in all sizes,i
    think from memory the part number is 90138810 but just make sure you ask
    the parts guy to check,if you get stuck then let me know and i`ll get them
    and send you them.
