    Removing chrome trim pieces on 2006 RXT

    How do you remove the 3 chrome trimmings on the front hood on the 2006 RXT?

    It looks like the lower part of the hood needs to be removed to access the bolts that hold on the chrome pieces.

    I've already removed the hood, and removed all the bolts that looks attached to the chrome pieces, but yet still nothing has budged to come off.

    you can drill out rivet

    you can, but if drill out the rivet then you will most likely drill a hole into the plastic if your not too careful....whatever works best for you

    Drilling works good. Just make sure you start with a small drill bit and work your way up to keep from hitting the plastic. You only have to drill it enough for the head of the rivet to come off. After the head of the rivet comes off then the panel should come right off.

    New pop rivets would be the best way. You can order as many as you need from the OEM parts store. All you need is the rivet gun.
