    i got the same ones. I find they tend to damage the pin head on the difficult ones. work great on the hidden ones but I still use a flat blade screwdriver to remove the obvious ones so they stay pretty.

    Yet another cheap fix. A car that comes apart with cheap chi-com pins that require another set of tools and pins (for the ones that bust).

    Congrats Dodge, you used something cheaper than a bolt :mad: Why did you not just use zip ties?

    isn't this car heavy enough already? now you want to replace light weigh plastic push pins with heavy metal hardware?

    I hope these push pins are more robust than the ones on my Wife's Lexus. They are worthless.
    Hold light weight plastic cover panels in place. The underside engine cover has some on the HC.

    I had to remove them to install my splash guards. They hold the plastic lining to the metal body and I am sure there are many others all over. They work very well. I had removed and reinstalled them on my Charger countless times because I would change out the bulbs in my fog lights. They are easily replaced when they get worn. Usually, they aren't getting removed that often.

    In the past, up here anyhow, I find there good for a couple of times & then wore out! Oil spray & winter driving really messes them up though. Plastic gets soft or swells with the Krown spray & salt with cold doesn`t do any favors to them either......
