Trying to remove mud flaps....help

So I got the drivers side off. Went over to the passenger side and noticed that the three plastic rivit clips are all different?

I want to take them out with as little damage as possible.

Top: regular one (I know how to get this one out)
Middle: some wierd looking one, the thig sticking out appears to be threaded.
Bottom: Looks like the middle one, but no thing sticking out.



Thanks in advance!

looks like an actual rivet and not a plastic fastener.

you may have to drill it out

They look like the kind that you take a small punch or phillips and gently punch the small center peice in. Then the whole thing just pops out.

trying to remove mudflaps

Hello,

Might you be interested in parting with your driver's side front mudflap?

Thanks,

Bill

I just did mine yesterday. There are 3 bolts and then 3 rivets. The rivets are two pieces. In order to remove them you have to get a flat head in between the top portion and the bottom portion of the rivet. If you try getting all the way underneath it, the rivet will break.

Here is a simple drawing
