i can try to figure out which rivets i used... i just drilled out the old rivets and sized new ones up on the old holes in the supports.. I've no idea how to measure them (diameter x length?). i replaced the rear driver/passenger 's and it wasnt hard.. was just 3 months ago so i can't remember, if i can figure it out i'll post later today

i talked to the audi parts center at my local dealership and they said 4.8x10, which didnt really help me lol. i was thinking of just going down to a hardware store and getting a box of half inch rivets...does anyone know if that would work?

4.8x10 = 3/16" x 3/8" (approx)

The Audi rivets are slightly bigger than 3/16". They jammed my riveter gun when set to 3/16" (largest). Then I tried using generic 3/16" rivets from the hardware store, but those turned out to be too small.
