so has anyone tried removing your floor mats? Those anchors are pretty secure and I'm almost afraid to pull too hard and break them! Do you just pull really hard? Saw this online and cracked up laughing!
Sometimes you end up breaking those clips much like the same style of clip that's used for other parts of the vehicle. Best thing to do is to buy extra clips just in case because it can be a PITA having broken clips and mats moving around because of that.
The clips are not the same as what's used on other parts of the vehicle. They don't really break that easily. The anchors with the hooks are extremely durable, the push clip ones are a bit more finnicky.
Its still operate the same way, they have prongs at the bottom that expand in the area it sits in, pulling to hard can break them. Even more likely of that happening with clips that have aged. Seen it happen in my dealership days. I think some floor mat kit come with extra clips just in case.
Then it was probably rare occurrences as my dealership days, I've seen it once and that was on a nearly 15 year old Caravan.
Either way, once you aren't monkeying around with your feet on the mats and remove and re-install them with common sense when you're cleaning the vehicle, you shouldn't have any issues at all with them.
