Need a tool

Does anyone know of a tool to remove these round body threaded nuts? A carriage bolt (round head) is threaded into it. They must be pneumatically installed at the factory using some type of socket. I'm trying to remove the bumper from my 2015 White Hawk 27DSRL and the bolt spacing is too close together to get any type of wrench on these nuts.

My guess is they are pressed into place. Do you have to reuse them?

If not, I'd default to a grinder or sawz-all to cut them clean off, whichever one can get in there.

They are called "rivnuts" one time use. They will need to be cut off. You can replace them with standard hardware.

Huck bolts.
They have to be cut off as they are one time use.

Right angle grinder with a cut off wheel will make quick work of it. Just make sure you can get new bolts in before cutting.
