15.07.2006: Inserted
Assemble one rivet as shown, put some grease between the washers. Insert it into the subframe and start tightening the bolt while holding the white threadless nut with a spanner. The nut will bite into the rivet and prevent it from spinning, so the bolt will start deforming the soft rivet as it's tightened further. Eventually the rivet will become tightly seated in its hole. Remove the bolt and proceed with the second rivet.
