Hi all
The 2 factory 4mm rivnuts in the B pillar are spinning free.

They are flush with the pillar so there's nothing to peen effectively.

Q: Has anyone got any tips on replacing these?
My thought is to fit new ones near the old,and drill new holes in the window channel.

Regards
Nigel

Well what i do is drill them out with a 3mm drill and replace them with suitably sized pop rivets unless of course you have the Rivet nut kit?
You wont even see them as they are covered by the door seal,  however it may take a while to drill out if they spin.

That's a lot easier.
