Glovebox rivets

Post by Mar2505 » Fri May 11, 2018 5:14 pm

Help,
The car wash people have managed to scrub away 4 of my glovebox rivets that decorate the top of the box.
Does anyone know how I replace them please (only had the car a few weeks so trying to keep it nice)

Buy yourself a bag of M&Ms, pick out the black ones and stick them to the dash. Sit back and eat the rest while admiring your work.

Ha ha but seriously, I have asked in the garage , tried to find on eBay, tried a breakers yard , nothing. It’s really bugging me that they are missing and Citroen customer care just did not even try to help

Have you been back to the car wash and remonstrated with them?

Yes but trouble is I can’t source these button type things. They very apologetic, willing to pay etc but can’t source to start the claim

I think you might have to go for a replacement lid. This might be of use.

I would be willing to bet, these are the same black rubber self adhesive "thingies" used for furniture and certain electronics...
