Hey folks.

My 2008 Scion xB has a issue with its fuel door hinge. I have a replacement for the door, but it has rivets holding it in place.

How would I go about removing them safely?
Or
Fixing the fuel hatch hinge?

Any help would be greatly appreciated. And thanks

Its been said before that you would need to drill them through. Then use nicely threaded/fitted screws to hold in place. I have an 09 xB that I will end up doing this for as I want to properly and fully paint the lid black and add a carbon fiber applique on top. I kinda did that already with some plastidip but I want the results to be clean and lasting.

I feared that. Thanks a lot for the assist
If you ever replaced your stock car speakers your basically have to do the same thing to remove the old speakers. You have to drill out the rivit. The only thing you need to make sure is that you get the right size sheet metal threaded screw to fasten it nice and tight.
