how to get silencer off biturbo

cleaning out exhaust but the silencer is aluminum so I need to take it off. There are bolts that look like allen heads but they are just circular not allen head shaped. Any way to take this off? Pretty much need to disassemble the whole exhaust.....

Torx looks like Allen but more star shaped, that it?

Re: how to get silencer off biturbo

those are rivets

drill them out to remove

beware that you'll need to figure out how to reattach it so you'll need rivets and a rivet gun or figure out some other fancy way (thick enough wood screw might work)

unfortunately no matter how you reattach it, it will more than likely work it's way back to being loose - some tack weld it, but I just re rivet it when it's loose

good luck

Yup drill those rivets.
