1. Do you know if I have to remove the broken half of the rivits
from inside the assembly or can I just push them aside when I
install the new rivits.
2. If I have to remove the the broken rivits from the inside of the
assembly how can this be done?
3. I have one rivit in my spare parts bag that is 2 inches long. Is

Thank you for any insights.
