There shouldn't be any rivets. The filler panel is held on with like 4 nuts. I'm pretty sure you have to take the tailights off too. Give it a little tug because there is some sealant on there and it should pop off.

The lock stays on. The filler panel should come off around it. Unless something was broken and they fixed it with rivets. That's the only thing i can think of. When I took mine off it just popped off.

You HAVE to remove both tail lights to get the filler panel out. No big deal, they are all plastic wing nuts. Pop out the tails, and just give the filler a little tug, and your done.

Yeah I ran into the same issue as you thinking that the lock cylinder may have to be taken out. Although it is just the few bolts and popping out of the tail lights too. Takes about 5 minutes if that!
