    Is there a specific tool to remove these things?

    I'm sick of slicing my fingers open when trying to remove them manually, can't always get a pair of needlenose pliers in to do it either.

    Bit of wood with two carefully spaced nails? Perhaps a drilled hole to go over the stud?

    What are they ? Heat shield fixings?

    They are used in various places to hold heat shields and plastic underbody protection parts in place.

    I have been looking for a good nut washing tool for ages - never one of my other half's strong points... :smile bounce:

    Long nosed pliers. They’re a bugger when the screw is rusted - just prise the centre out with the pliers and it’ll unscrew. Wear gloves when unscrewing as they ruin the tips of your fingers :mad:
