Rokut Rivets

Recommended Posts

All,

 

Just about to remove some of the plastic panels on a door so that I can use them on another car.

 

Does anyone know if you can re-use 'Rokut Rivets' and how do you remove them without damage (if thats possible)?

 

Cheers

In my experience, no matter how careful you are a few of them will become casualties and will need replacing. I use a screwdriver or small pry bar to tease the centre out and the outer follows easily once it's removed. I bought a pack of 50 for less than a tenner on ebay as spares :)

Bingo!

 

Tried to push the centers out from the back with varying degrees of success but then push them through from the rivet 'face' i.e. pushing them all the way through.

 

Much easier and no damage!
