This procedure contains information and instructions to keep the CBC weathertight and in good working
order by inspecting and replacing defective blind rivets.
Inspect the blind rivets to ensure that they are not loose or missing. Remove and replace as described in
the procedures that follow.
Remove defective blind rivets as follows:
Safety goggles must be worn during repair to protect eyes from flying
metal chips. Failure to wear proper eye protection may result in eye
injury and/or blindness.
Select a drill bit (1) that is the same diameter as installed blind rivet (2).
Install selected drill in chuck.
Hold drill perpendicular to the surface to prevent enlargement or damage to existing hole.
