Some of the snap caps left behind a little ring of plastic around the plastic washer-any ideas on how to remove this?
Thanks for you your help!!
Just use a thin screwdriver of knife to pry under the edge of the cap. If they are old and weathered they will almost fall
The clear plastic cup under the rivets or screw heads are what hold the caps on.
Pop rivets need to be drilled out, screws can be backed out.
As another said, use a dab of silicone sealant under the cup.
