Rear window regulator rivets?

497 Views 7 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  Merzatt
Rear regulator wire has snapped on our 2005 ML350...

I've never dealt with rivets so will need to get a tool - what size rivets does the 163 use and will any rivet gun work?
What's the general take on this?

Great thanks - would this rivet gun work?

Actually this one has a review that said he used it for a 2003 ML window regulator, so this should do the trick with your steel rivet part # above!
Many thanks guys!
