Just got a TOTAN and the DMD glass is dirty and has rivets holding it down. How do you get these off?

You cut them off they are push nuts, check out pinball life their new screens come with new push nuts

If it's just dirty and not scratched then just clean it, dont think the push nuts can be removed and reused with out damaging plastic or loosening the nut.

Why the hell did the go that route or was this someone's "repair". I think this speakerboanel came from the infamous PaPa flood

I used a small wire cutter snip to cut in the washer-nut, as a slice in a pizza/ pie. Once you have the cut through the washer-nut you can you a needle nose and bend it off with some twisting involved. If you install a new plexiglass, you wont be unhappy. Best of luck..

That's factory. Not a repair.
