Hello Martin and welcome to the forum.
I think you will find those press studs in a dealers shop or look on Amazon for heavy duty press studs. you will also need a special tool to fix them.

Hello Jan
I got 2 different kinds one from ebay one from Amazon but the problem is the stud that goes through the mat is not long enough to fit the back piece on too I'm looking to know where I can get the stud with longer shank .

Thank you for the welcome Jan

Not sure if them type will work Jan with the mats I have as there is no pile to hide the ring but I will look on YouTube to see how they are fitted you would not think it would be as hard to find the ones I was after as near all motorhomes have mats with them fitted.
Thank you for all your help mate and making me welcomed

Do the mats already have studs in them with a few missing, as you say one wouldn’t think it was so difficult to replacements. I don’t understand what you mean about the ring being hidden, the press stud on top is always visible surely.

BTW, Jan is short for Janet, not sure if you realised that as you referred to me as ‘mate’. 😊

Welcome Martin, from Belfast - what part are you in?

It's possible that you might want to remove the carpets from your MH altogether so maybe you should use it for a bit before you decide? I think most continental vans have hard flooring (mine does, but I lay some foam underlay pieces in the winter to keep the tootsies warmer.)

I imagine that's a fairly easy fix (😂 says she, the Dunce of the 12v class!) but might I suggest you start a new thread with a descriptive title (eg Warning light draining battery) that might attract the 12v wizards on here?
