Having looked for this topic without success, does anyone know the proper way to remove the plastic rivets without damaging them?

Also, can anyone recommend which workshop manual to buy?

Thank you in advance for any information you can provide.

Slid a flat head screw driver under the center plug, There is an indentation on 2 sides of the bottom one to allow access to the middle center one. . Slip the center out and then take the outer part out via the same method.

As far as the manual, I tried a couple and found the best one to be the Green Manuals on ebay.
