    I was not present when the dealer removed the safety spoiler caps, wanting to re-install. I see three sets of rivets on the underside of spoiler thinking I will attempt to remove one rivet without hopefully making a mistake and if successful remove all to re-install caps, does this sound right or let the dealer re-install? thanks to all who advise.

    Just curious, why? Not understanding why anyone would want those ugly yellow things on the car.

    If you are worried about the splitter dragging, get the splitter protector washers/cones that go under the splitter. I installed them on mine and they work well.

    Those black plastic rivets have a small notch in them. Insert a small straight blade screwdriver and pull the center portion out. The entire rivet will pull out at that point. You can't mess it up. Pull all three out, place the protector on and push the rivets back in.

    Got it thanks Wayne, these protectors are great glad I was able to secure a pair as just pulling in/out of my driveway has a dip & has really taken a toll on the edge of the spoiler, thanks again.

    They don't have to remain yellow ... :rolleyes:

    Some guys have painted the guards to match their Cat or the splitter.
