Greetings,
The plastic fasteners, I believe there's 6-8, that hold down the plastic piece in the funk on top of the radiator - the heads are all stripped. What should I do? Drill them out carefully? Any ideas?

Thanks.

I think you have to cut them out and replace them with new ones. I tried getting them out when I flushed out my coolant and I had to break one off. None of them seem to come out. You can get replacements at autozone or PepBoys. I have seen them.

You can slip a utility knife under the head of the screw and work it a little to get it out. But you can replace them with similar ones from parts stores. I think I even found some at Lowes.

some have a center that pulls/pushes out then the clip removes

some just pull out and push back in (reuseable)
some do the same but have to be replaced.
they are easly availible at the part store if you break one
