Floor mat tethers

Hi,
The floor mat securing clips on the driver side have pulled out of the main carpet.

Originally, they screwed in but the hole in the carpet has become worn and they just pull out.

Has anybody come up with a clever repair for this?

Gordon.

I've had engines in and out, completely dismantled 3 cars and done all sorts to Z3s.

But this one has always beaten me. In fact I was only thinking about it again in the last few days! It's a safety thing too the mat rides up and can affect operation of the pedals if you are not careful.

The answer might be to close the hole up with a suitable glue or compound. Then 're-tap' it.

I await suggestions with interest!

Mine are large discs apparently stuck (or not in my case) to the underside of the mat. Drive me nuts!
