Hey all, picked up my wrx over the weekend and didnt have a chance to try and pull the silencer out until tonight. The problem I ran into was trying to get the plastic "pop rivets" out. I was following these instructions from here http://scoobymods.com/forums/showthread.php?t=113The problem was, after I got under the car I saw 4 of the plastic "screws" that have the philps head top to them and 2 that didnt have anything on them (circled in yellow). I cant get those last 2 out, I tried pliers, tried prying them off with a screwdriver, etc. without getting those 2 out, is there ANY other way to to the silencer? I mean I can pull the flap back as you can see in the pic, but not enough where I can even see the 2 thumb screws, let alone have enough room to get the silencer out.Now get under the car. You will see a somewhat rectangular piece of plastic with (6) screw/rivets in it. Take this flap off . Now you will see (2) thumb screws with rectangular heads.
the 2nd pic is shot looking up under the car and is 1 of the 2 I cant get off.
Sorry for such a long post for a stupidly simple thing, but for the life of me I cant get those 2 off. Any advice?
