    Removing side skirts??

    i wanted to change my skirts on my astra mk4 to Gsi ones today. but looking at the how to section its saying i need to buy clips etc? as its sunday nowhere would be open. has anyone done this without buying any clips? i have pop rivets and a pop rivet puncher so i dunno if this would help?

    Its the push pin rivets that will need replacing 90087290 as you need to push the pin in the centre of the rivet in to the sill to release the rivet.
    once you've removed all of the rivets DONT pull the skirt off like it says in the how to, slide them to the rear of the car to remove.this way you wont break the clips 9174457or 90560744 that hold the skirt on.
