Following on from a headlight changing post a few months back, did anyone find out exactly what 2 different sizes the plastic grill rivets are please? Being doing a detail in my engine bay today and seems last owner smashed all but 2 of them which are in but look like wrong ones.

Just pop one of the rivets out and see what the best fit drill bit is.
They look like 6mm and 8mm Dia.

My wife says that I never listen or something like that !

I've just had a little look and you can get re-useable ones. The ones that Vauxhall fit have to be prised out and it can damage the plastic head. I have re-used them but they look a bit of a mess. These below can be un-screwed and reused. Happy days.
