Usually they are held on by double sided tape. It is easier to remove them by using a heat gun or hair dryer then slowly pulling on it. Then remove the leftover adhesive with some laquer thinner or sometime some strong rubbing alcohol will work. Good luck.

A riveted connection requires much more force to break the connection than a bolted connection. Furthermore, a bolt can become loosened by vibration which is highly unlikely in a riveted connection. Therefore, a bolt is weaker than a rivet.

It would appear that the relay is located on the cross rail that runs across the front of the vehicle (in front of the radiator). I found out that it is riveted in place by a single rivet, so in order to replace mine, I will have to remove the rivet and use a self-tapping screw to secure a new one.

It takes a lot more stress and force to break a weld than it does to pop a rivet.
