Replace a/c unit in 1985 13

We have an 1985 13 with a wall a/c that needs to be replaced. It's in the bottom of the cabinet unit immediately to the left when you enter. It is riveted to the cabinet unit on all four sides. Has anyone replaced such a unit? What would we replace the rivets with? I don't know how to access the sides of the a/c unit, as the backs of the rivets seem inaccessible. Thanks for any help!

i would drill out the rivets

i would drill out the rivets and replace with a modern AC unit.  Much more energy efficient and you could get higher BTU to cool faster.
