      Tech Tips

      Tape the 4 mm (0.157 in.) drill bit to prevent the drill bit from going too deep.

    3. Lightly press the drill against the 8 rivets, drill off the flanges of the 8 rivets, and remove the rear door moulding outside.

      Note


      • Pressing the drill too firmly will cause the rivet to turn and result in the rivet not being drilled through.

      • Do not pry the rivet with the drill, because this may cause damage to the installation holes of the rivet or the drill bit.

      • Be careful of the drilled rivet as it may become hot.

    4. Using a vacuum cleaner, remove the rivet fragments and shavings from the drilled area.
