Push rivets size?

Does anyone know what size the plastic push rivets are for the wheel liners? Had to pull off the front wheel liner and broke the rivets. Any help appreciated.

Get the Porsche ones not very expensive, and they stay in.

I found some at the auto parts store by taking in one of my existing ones, it wasn't perfect but very close.

Buy a bag of the Porsche ones for pretty cheap from Pelican. You should periodically pull your front bumper and clean out the radiators and duct work anyway. It's amazing how much debris builds up in there in a year or two. And gently separate the side of the radiator and a/c condenser, a surprising amount of stuff gets in between the two! Also a good time to check that both horns are functioning, as the bumper needs to be off to replace them. Then you always have some of the rivets in case one breaks!

I agree with some of the others here - get the Porsche ones.

I keep 6 spares in my parts bag.

Part number is: 999-507-497-40-M58 - $0.75 each from Pelican. Drop the M58 from the end if you get them from your local dealer.
