    I have some new plates and surrounds to fit, the rear one no problem, but the front looks like its riveted on. I don't want to drill them out only to find I cannot fix the new one in place.

    Anyone?

    Well, not being able to fit the new one springs to mind :)

    Its going from bad to bloody worse :scared2:

    I started on the rear and one of the screws was tight, then snapped.
    You know those quick jobs that will only take around five minutes and end up taking all day ?

    haha, I had the same problem on my old 2005 TFSIQ, ended up levering the plate off and using mole grips to take the rest of the screw out.
