Can someone tell me how to remove this? I thought it was screwed on but it looks like it is riveted or something. I need to remove it to put in the Bumper Plugs i bought. Help!!!!

They are riveted. The only way is to use a drill.

Excuse the novice question here but how do I drill them out? Is there a specific way or judt drill right into them?

The shaft of the Rivet is smaller than the head, so use a smaller bit than the size of the head, and drill right into/through it.

mmm makes sense. Mine had a weird head on it, and i had no tool for it, so i let the dealer take care of it. Knowing you have to drill it out makes me feel a little better i didn't try harder and wreck something!

Yep, drill them out and expect some scuffing behind and possibly around the monster piece of plastic that holds the plate. I was able to pretty much rub them out. And yes, there are 4 of them to get out. Good luck.
