Just picked up my new mats from the dealer and they don't mount the same...Comes with threaded plastic pads and velcro style hook/loop system. My question is do I remove the old clip style/toggle booger from the carpet? Without leaving a big hole? And do they really expect me to drive these new plastic pads into my floorboards??????? I went with factory replacements for a reason ya know...So I wouldn't have to modify shit

The old anchors will unscrew from the floor, and the new ones screw into place there. I had to do this on mine.

No prob. I like the newer anchors, anyway. No plastic visible. Most people in my car don't know the floor mats are anchored anyway. They think the floormats just stick really well.

There should be a peg on your vehicle's floor that those two grommets fit around. That peg unscrews from the floorboard carpeting.
