I have a missing rivet on my rear bumper. I bought a new one from the stealership... $5...

It won't fit in my regular rivet gun, do I need to buy a different gun or would a garage have one? What do I do?

Re: Rivets
for just one plastic rivet, you could use a pliers to pull the shaft as you hold the rivet in. or borrow a plastic riveter .....

PLUS you need to find the sticky with access to cheap rivets..........

Re: Rivets
a plastic rivet setter is a must if you own a wk. Look can find them for $25 and less....

Re: Rivets
Harbor Freight has these under 20 bucks. Most of there tools are crap but there is not a whole lot to a plastic rivet gun. I bought one and it works good
