Kev, I looked at my trunk and want to change the spring tension. How do I get the lil plastic rivits out without ruining them? I did some pulling and nada.....I can see the spring but need to pop a couple of those rivits to get to it.
Pogster has the quoted text right from the start of my write up.
The tool can be seen in the first picture of a tutorial I did on installing NAV in a Saturn Outlook we used to own.
See the tool on the far left in the first picture here:
Use the tool to pry the top of the christmas tree fastener out. It will look a little mangled but will be reusable. Replacment fasteners can be bought cheaply at any car parts store. Take the old one in to match it up if needed.
