    So, it's time to replace the rollers on my rear window regulator. I bought the new roller and rivet from LMC. Anyone put on of these in before? Is there a special tool to install them? Looks like maybe some sort of swaging tool is necessary to fold down the end of the rivet. Any help would be appreciated.

    I did this a while ago, but if I remeber correctly I took the arms that the rollers go on out and used a hammer to flatten the rivet down. I haven't had any problems since doing it that way, and the window works fine.
