In my manual it says to use a 6mm drill bit to drill out the rivets. Then you would need to replace them with new ones. I've never done this before.

Interesting... You will have a lot of nasty tar and dirt on the bumper. Do you plan on lowering the car, that's what I'm going to be doing. When the springs go on, flaps are coming off

nice...but i am not doing for lowering its just that i dont like on all four (unless an SUV). for a sedan i like it only on front flaps..having it on all 4 makes the car old in my opinion..
