    removing plastic fasteners

    I know this is a stupid question, but how do you remove the plastic fasteners that attach the plastic cover on the underside of the car? I'm trying to change my coolant and I'm having trouble getting the stupid plastic fasteners off. Are they the type that break once they're released or are they reusable? thanks

    I use a pair of dykes to pull the center of them out, and the outer section then pulls out easy.

    Look close at the plugs, They have a little square indention on the flat outside of em.

    Stick a small blade screwdriver in the square and tilt down the center of the plug and pull it out.

    To put it back in, Just push it in, It will pop back in place.

    That's pretty much what I do. . .stick a screwdriver in the slot and twist. Once you get it out, you'll see how it works and be able to figure out how to put them back in.
