Default Replacing the rear exrerior door handle pivot.

The rear passanger door handle pivot of my 07 ION broke and must be replaced. I removed the exterior skin and just need to remove the pivot itself. However, it looks as if it is mounted with rivets. How do I remove and replce the handle pivot?

Iíve attached a picture.

Im talking about the little plastic clip that holds the exterior door handle in place. I couldn't find a replacement so I left it alone.
