Was going to remove the center console to run some wires and it looks like there are some plastic rivets that need to be removed. The problem is they are recessed in a hole about the size of a quarter and I don't see any good way to get to them out. I was thinking of drilling but thought I would try here first. There are two on the passenger side and two on the driver side near the cup holders just in front of the seat kind of around where your knee would be. I assume there is some tool or trick I just don't know about.

Just use a flat head screwdriver and work them out, The stock pushpins are a pain in the butt and most of the time they get chewed up when you take them out. I replaced mine with this style of pushpin that I’ve always had on my motorcycle fairings, just push center in with screwdriver and they pop right out with your fingers.

I use shorter rivets for plastic to sheet metal.
I use these for most every thing else.

The pins are different lengths and styles on all of these, but are interchangeable with the factory rivets. The base pads also have different diameters with the factory rivet bases being smaller. I like to mix and match. On the dash and center console I use the factory rivets with the wider heads to give a clean finish.

On certain areas of the body I like using the larger based rivets for more support.
