are you talking about the one in the wheel well or the one directly behind the side marker that attaches the bumper to the fender?

rivot in the wheel well- just like the other three that are on the edge just turn the wheel to get back there

rivot behind the side marker- take off the side marker first. Its super easy just put a flat head in there and pop it out slowly. You can then see the connectors and see where you need to place the screwdriver to put pressure to release the clips. Once that is out of the way you should see the rivot no problem

It should just come out with a small flat head screw driver. Try your finger nails maybe.

I just spraypainted over them completely with gloss black. I had some left over from blacking out the headlights and I figured why not.

I also pulled the bulb from behind it just becaues the side marker doesnt do anything but light up. If you keep the bulb in light escapes around the sides and it just didnt look good.

so would it look like light is leaking from the cracks? or does it appear more of a dark orange
