Make yourself a fork out of a thin drywall scraper (cut a V shape) ... hook it to the little knob in the middle of the plastic rivet and pull up .... you can also use pliers (wire cuttters) get under the nipple part and pull out. Be careful with cutters not to cut the nipple off....

Smaller part in the middle of it pulls up and larger part stays there till you have the little part pulled up. then pull whole thing. Once you have one out you'll see how it works.

Autozone sells a trim remover with the fork in it for around $10. Looks like a screwdriver.

Cool thanks guys. FieroFreak called me and also told me to use some break cleaner or some form of lube to help remove them. That worked well. See!



Anyways, that was the easy part. Next question is how do I get this blooming bolt out since it started spinning and there is no square head on the back side only a round head. >.< Keeps on spinning and spinning and spinning! Bout to drive me nuts!

Cut the bolt and use a speed nut placed on the bumper and a new bolt

Hard not to work on my car on a day like that..



Whom ever said cut it, you got it! It will be cut soon! That bolt nearly had me cussing!



T3 on the ground! Needs a 3400 or 3800 to play with.


Yes they are rubbing. Got 2 1.5" adapters coming here next week.


Best $200 upgrade the car will see. 18"s worth.


Supervisor on duty.


Pick up.


And put up.

That'll be my daughter in a couple of years...right now, she's content to steal daddy's tools one at a time and pile them up in some hidden corner of the garage somewhere. And daddy doesn't think anything of it until it's the tool he needs that's gone missing.

HAHA. I hear ya. Mine loves to take my screw drivers and dig holes in the ground. (When she is not bringing tools to daddy) LMBO. She likes it outside with me. We have a good time together. My 4 month old son has a bit of growing before he can help.
