[BKARTS] 3-ring binder repair

I have a smallish 3 ring binder to repair. I thought it would be pretty straightforward. The metal thing with the rings attached to it came loose. I just got rivets and a rivet tool from Talas. Now I am not sure how to get the old rivets out, without making the existing hole too large for the new rivets. Maybe just pry and get them up? And the rivets are longer than needed, they are 5/8ths inch, for a domed binder mechanism. This one is flat. It is one of these danged publisher binders that are whatever size they feel like making them (9 1/2" long), so I can't replace the binder mechanism. Thanks in advance for any advice.
