Tesla: Using Flow Form Rivets

Tesla: Using Flow Form Rivets

In a recent Tesla Body Repair Tech Note, Tesla talks about the use of flow form rivets. The document covers when to use flow form rivets, how to choose which rivet to use (along with part numbers), and preparing the panels for installation.

In the Body Repair Tech Note Tesla states, “Flow form rivets can also be used as an alternative to self-piercing rivets (SPRs) in any Tesla structural repair procedure that specifies the use of SPRs. This includes situations where there might not be sufficient room for the installation ofSPRs because panels have been previously replaced.” To find out more information check out the Body Repair Tech Note here.
