Removing E-Brake cable from rear backing plate

Ok so I am stumped, I trying to change a hand brake cable and I can't for the life of me figure howto get the cable free from the backing plate. I have read the factory shop man. andno word on how to remove look like it is riveted in the backing plate are the rivet pins a press fit or a crush rivet, and you have to drill them out help

I think it's just to philps screws that are full of dirt ? Where did you get the new cable from?

2 phillips head screws per side and I had to drill 3 of mine out. Used an extractor.

Thanks
got them out with out having to drill. Went to Harbor Freight Tools purchased a pick set and cleaned the dirt from the screw heads, then soaked them for days with Sea Foam Deep Creep, The screws backed out with little restance.
Regarding the new cable it's off a parts truck that I bought from CT. (parts truck had low miles on it but every piece of metal rusted through even the frame)
If your looking for a new one I think you can still get the RH cable from Rockauto parts, I rember reading that the B2000 uses the same cable
if any one is intrested I have a rib case 5 speed for sale from a cosmo it was in the parts truck,
