The rear side cargo door latch has malfunctioned and I need to remove the door handle assemble in order to service but it appears to be riveted. Before I drill the assembly can someone verify if this is correct.

    rtf,

    According to the shop manual instructions for the side cargo door rear latch, you do not need to remove the door handle assesmbly to service it.

    However, to answer your actual question - yes, to remove the handle you do have to drill out the rivets.

    Good luck, and please do follow up for any clarifications you may need. If you do, please explain further if you mean a side sliding door, a side cargo door, or a rear cargo door, just to make sure I understand.

    Thanks, and good luck!
