Need help replacing case locking closures

I just bought a used upper and lower case for an iBook G4 12". I plan to remove the upper and lower clasp assemblies and install them in my working iBook G4. I have already torn it down all the way to replace the HD and it worked great with the ifixit steps. Should I have to once again tear the computer completely apart to replace the clasps? These are the clasps that enable the computer to snap shut and stay closed.

if you don't break it down far enough you can't complete the repair.
