I don't think they'll pull out. They look like metal rivets to me.

Yes they are simple metal rivets.
Drill them out and replace them with screws.
That'* what I did. Use a 1/8 bit and if not go to a 3/16"

Do you know exactly what code was thrown? It is possible that the sensor is OK, but the catalytic converter is bad.

I don't remember it now, i got it scanned at 12...only thing I remember was the letter P involved in it..I watched the guy look it up and it came right up to the sensor..even watch him scan it...it said cataylic 02 censor back i think..

Also I never changed the sensor and it was 117kmiles on it
