I've got a Star Wars Episode 1 that I'm trying to replace the Neon Transformer on. It lives in the handle of the lightsaber, but I'm unsure how to open the lightsaber up to get at the transformer. It appears to be riveted together. Do I need to drill out those rivets? Is there another way?

It seems awfully fragile...

Sure enough, took the assembly out and gave it 12 volts and it lit right up. Must be something driving it failing...
