What is the best way to remove the rivets from the wheel liner? I need to access the manifold. 06 XK.

If you look at the rivet, there is a tiny circle in the middle. Get a drill bit that is slightly larger then the circle and drill it out. After that the rivet will just pop out without damaging anything.

You can buy the correct rivets at your local Napa Auto Parts store in a box of 20 for around $7. Part # 770-2871 The dealer sells the rivets individually for like $6 a piece. Napa also sells a rivet gun for plastic rivets.

Thanks for the info on part number, I did get stung by the dealer for around $8.00 awhile back. I will check at Napa.
