Default Replacing the Tailgate Assist anchor point insert. Deezee or EZDown

Anyone else swapped tailgates and run into a snag when it came time to swap over their tailgate assist? If you are carefull, you can remove the insert and reuse it but more than likely, you will damage it beyond use and require a new one.

I managed to track down the part number for the insert and purchase a new one...or ten. Unfortunately they only come in packs of 10 so I have a few spares if anyone is interested. Just cover postage.

Mcmaster Carr part number is 97217A444
Proper term is a Rivet Nut for plastics.
