    Astra coupe rivets?

    Well look at picture


    that is what i see in my EPC, what i need is this part "2" ... my english iz bad, so i will say i need it for that red circled stuff... my rivets are broken, so i need to replace them, i went in my part store, and they tried to see in EPC rivet part number, but they have some other version of EPC so they could not find rivets for my car... i need all 3 of them, can i buy only rivets? (i will show them these part number, but there is a lot of number 2 parts, probably every one of 3 rivets have its own part number)
    What do you think, what should i buy, all rivets that are named as part "2" or what, and can i buy only rivets, are they sold separatly ?

    If it has a part number it should be available separately. I'm sure I've bought the same bits in the UK without difficulty.

    The fist no 2 listed is an old part number hence it being in (brackets).. So you will need one of the other two lines listed... not sure which one as I've no idea what it says

    It says it is for front doors, are they interchangable?

    Odd that

    They are not interchangeable.

    The one on your photo nearest to the figure 2 is the one for rear strips, and the physically narrower ones each side of it are for the front strips

    Ok, i went in car parts store, and i didnt have any luck...

    How do you call that "number 2" part, is that rivet or what? (English is not my native language) I would try to order it from ebay, but when i type rivet i dont get what i want.. so how do you call it then?
