Unhappy Awning Rail becomming detached

On the way home from the Oregon Gathering, I woke up one morning with a little multi-pointed metal star thingie on my pillow. It took a lot of searching to figure out what it was and where it came from. It is the inside of a rivet that used to hold part of the awning rail. At first only one had come apart but now there are 3 missing.

How does one go about disassembling a Carefree Fiesta roll-up awning so I can reattach the awning rail with new fasteners? Or is this a job for a professional awning installer?

From here:
Carefree Fiesta Patio Awning
You can download the installation, owners and service
manuals. It looks like the service manual tells you how. You will have to decide for yourself if you want to do it yourself.
