Oasis Elite Door Awning Screws?

I need help. I have a 2008 Vectra and my door awning sprang open. Motor still turns. I've found great help on fixing it. But, I tried to get it off the coach and cannot identify the screws holding it on. It is a 974 model and I have a couple pictures of the screws but can't figure out what type of screw driver fits them. I have all kinds of drivers but cannot find one that fits. First, they were filled with caulk which I removed. Now they look like a silver hollow screw surrounded by black metal? Please help. We are due to leave campground on Monday morning.

You can't find screws because there aren't any. Those are rivets (I know this because I went through the exact same thing).

To remove, I used a flat chisel and hammer to remove the rivets, then the awning slides off towards the front.
Upon replacement, you can use pop rivets or screws and plastic mollies (spelling?) - anything that will go through the holes and expand on the other side.
I would agree completely that screws make more sense, but....well....
Best of luck.

Thanks so much. Now that I know, it does look exactly like a pop-rivet. Off it comes tomorrow. Thanks again...
