Frustrated ..please help

I need to know how excatly do you guys to push those pop rivets back in place...the ones you pull out when u have to install a new bulb in you tail lights( lude 97and up)

I'm pretty muscular...yet all the strength in the world isn't enough to overcome the force??? how do you do it? the owner's manual suggests simply pushing it back...thts an understatement...

I'll have to look again but I think mine I have this little turn like knob to remove a cover that is over the rear taillights, then you have to twist the bulb holder then pull straight out, then when you have the bulb in hand push in and twist I forget which way but its pretty much common sense at that point. Then to put back go reverse in order.

I don't know what you mean about pop rivets, if what you are talking about is the little plastic rivets that have a small round punch that goes in the middle of the rivet take a phillips screwdriver and push that little round like cylinder thing in the middle in that will releave the holding tabs on the backside of the rivet and you should be able to pull that out with your hand now. Once you have the rivet out pull that round thing back out so its popping out thru the front side so that you may re install it after your done replacing bulbs or whatever. You push the rivet back in then simply push the center in and it will snap in place.
