Plastic sidecases OEM for 650 xt 2017-2022

I have bought some sidecases used off of the Market Place. The right sidecase works like a charm. The left side locking mechanism will not work. The handle will not completely go down flat which prevents sidecase from being securely latched to bike. Does anybody have any experience with this type of problem with their sidecases. It seems to be some obstruction that will not let the handle properly close. Trying to take it apart, there seems to be pop rivets that hold all of guts of the case. I am afraid to drill out the rivets and have parts go everywhere. I have tried to close with latch open, closeded and with key or without key. No luck! My Suzuki dealer does not know how to repair. Any advice or help would be appreciated.

1. Look for bent metal latch parts. Compare range of motion of moving parts with the operational good case.. look for warped plastic panel sections that make cause mis alignment. Could use hair dryer to soften bulged panels.
2. Use blue painters tape and a Sharpie marker to label each piece and take pictures of the case with labels to facilitate re assembly.
3. Drill,out pop rivets if needed to dis assemble. Pop rivets are easy to find on lots of sizes.
