Have been trying to replace the headlight on my elise and having a few problems trying to remove the wheel arch cover.

The top screw appears to have been tightened too tight by a previous owner and is stuck hard. It has also rusted half away so has been mostly stripped!

Only one of the plastic bolt things will come out, the other just spins and doesn't do anything but still holds the cover in place.

It appears there are two rivets holding the top in place also, will these just pop out? Do they need drilling out and replacing? They aren't mentioned anywhere (that I can find) online so is this not a common thing?

Thanks for any suggestions!
