    Hi,

    I recently had to remove my rear bumper on my 7th Generation Accord which included removing 2 rivet clips which look similar to this (hence the notches in the collar) :

    1000x1000.


    I managed to get the clips out using a screwdriver after a bit of a struggle, however I was wondering if there a special removal tool out there for this.

    The only thing I found is this :

    3 pc. Body Clip Set KDT-41850 BRAND NEW! | eBay

    KDT-41850.


    however it is very costly and cannot find a UK supplier - does anyone any links to these type of tools.

    I will need to remove the front bumper soon - and this would speed up the job.

    Thanks in advance.

    Thanks for link - will have a look at that - I was just wondering if anyone had a tool they used rather than flat blade screwdrivers?

    For that price, it's worth a shot.
    Let us know how you get on. If it's any good, we can add it the Tools section.

    I have a set I bought from a US seller I will get some images up on them, They are life savers they save the push clips from screwdriver damage.

    Here is my set I have had these for a good 8-9 years and since owning them I have never broken one plastic push pin fixings. One is 30 degree angle and the other is 80 degrees and it gets the corners perfectly. ImageUploadedByTapatalk1407094122.816214. ImageUploadedByTapatalk1407094139.377861.

    IIRC they were for 20 dollars US. Worth every single penny.

    I've had the same set as @Ichiban in my eBay watch list for what must be a year now. Let us know when your set of Sealeys arrive @Sphinx, at that price I'd definitely bite too :Smile:

    Mate the OTC ones are just the tool for these push pins, I have my doubts on the sealeys spring loaded action and the mouth.
