Question about Factory K12RS Side case assemblies.

Question is...do the locking assmemblies come apart on the factory side cases? I assumed they may to facilitate re-keying but it looks like everything is rivited?

Here's why I ask. I pushed down on the case handle to try and lock the bag closed but I had forgotten I had the lock locked already. The orange tab got bent down. So I went to strighten it with a pliers and it snapped. It would be real easy to epoxy back on or replace with a new one I'm thinking, but I need to be able to get it apart so I can work with the peice. I don't want to start drilling rivits without advice.

TIA!

yes the locking mech can be removed by drilling the rivets.

no parts can be bought for these so you will need donor parts from junk latch.
I will look at the junker I have to see if the orange tab is intact.

dissassembling the latch is a science project, hope you enjoy a challenge!
