    theyre not rivets they are screws. take a pair of vice grips and turn them they will come off and then you replace them with regular screws and then adjust it

    exactly, just try to get some vice grips on there. If you can't, grind the high part off and it will let you pull the sensor off. Then you will def. be able to get vice grips on there. pull the rest of the stud out and replace with screws.
