    Default Front bumper

    Just doing a recci for fitting new SRi front bumper to my Elite and following Andy's 'How to' for bumper removal.
    Attempting to remove the 4 plastic rivets underneath the car securing the back of a dirt sheild.



    What's the process for getting these bu***rs off , brute force & ignorance don't seem to be working.

    Used 2 small flat head screw drivers, one each side then when the head came down a touch i then used a small open ended spanner (smaller than the head) and pull downwards.That way you wont damage the heads,.
    Before replacing them i put a small amount of washing up liquid on the long stems so they slid in alot easier (and the do slide out)

    Try that..

    Thanks guys.
    Bought 4 new ones today (20p each) so it'll be brute force and a little less ignorance.
