Question about door trim rivets?

So i recently felt the urge to paint the interior of my 07 wk laredo. So far i have the entire center console in a mate black and it looks amazing. My next task is the is all four door upper and lower armrests. Now i would really rather not tape off the sections i want painted and instead completely remove them so i can paint the entire piece properly. The problem i seem to have come upon with that is there are certain plastic rivets in the armrests that hold it in place. Now i can certainly remove these pieces but i cant for the life of me find a website or a manufacturer who sells the correct piece. The attachments below are the rivets i need so any help would be GREATLY APPRECIATED!!!2011-02-20_18-17-43_596.jpg

Re: Question about door trim rivets?

what you are looking at is like spot welds in the plastic. its melted like that with heat. the only way to take them apart is to melt or cut out those rivets then use a plastic welder or lots of epoxy to put it all back together.

the second pic is the locking mechanism. you will need that for sure.

Re: Question about door trim rivets?

ok thanks. so in your opinion would it be easier to use epoxy or a plastic welder (have no clue what that is lol) or maybe something else?
