Just take your time and try to keep as many of the plastic rivet pins as you can, because they are expensive once you manage to find them.
How much are those plastic pins? Is it only Suzuki main dealer that we can order them from? I'll need some soon as years are taking it's toll and i am losing a few here and there.
Halfords do them now.

You can get them of that Eblag site in packs of 5 or ten.. you could try mossexpress.co.uk but they are a trade place and most bags start at 2,500 units..if you have the size..
