      Note

      Tape the 4.0 mm (0.157 in.) drill bit to prevent the drill bit from going too deep.

    4. Lightly press the drill bit against the 5 rivets to drill off the 5 rivet flanges and remove the 5 rivets.

      Note


      • Make sure to protect both the inside and outside of the vehicle as the rivet shavings will fly about.

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

      • Prying the rivets with the drill may damage the rivet installation holes or drill bit.

      • Be careful of the drilled rivets, as they may be hot.

    5. Using a vacuum cleaner, remove the rivet fragments and shavings from the drilled areas.
