Put a 4 mm (0.157 in.) drill bit into a drill.
Wind tape around the drill bit approximately 5 mm (0.197 in.) from the tip of the drill, as shown in the illustration.
Tape the 4 mm (0.157 in.) drill bit to prevent the drill bit from going too deep.
Lightly press the drill against the 8 rivets, drill off the flanges of the 8 rivets, and remove the rear door moulding outside.
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.
Using a vacuum cleaner, remove the rivet fragments and shavings from the drilled area.
