Did you try driving out the hingepins as suggested?One side case I as able to open, and replacing the lock should be, as you said, pretty straightforward. Although, the second side case is locked closed and I have to drill it - and hope I'm not going to ruin the case I watched some videos and the guy doesn't know what is he doing or I didn't get it. He kind of massacred the lock!
Drilling out the locks is nothing to be worried about though. Slow and steady (especially getting started), and make sure that the case is well braced and can't move on you once you have started.
