How do I disassemble a Typhoon LPR?

I've finally found the big trouble with my Typhoon: the LPR output barb had stripped the threads. So I've bought a SS insert kit. But I don't want to drill there with a built LPR. I know that technically I would be able to just put air and blow all the debris. But If I could just take it away (and lube a bit), it would be great. Problem is that apparently, the thing is held by two clinchs on the sides (I don't know if this is the correct translation from Spanish "remache", sorry). Am I wrong or this wasn't meant to be disassembled?
BTW, I'm in Argentina and with this heavy beast, shipping to and from Sacramento would cost aproximatelly the same than what I paid, so it's a no no. Of course I won't complain about voided warranties and such stuff.

The only way to get the LPR body out of a Typhoon, requires that the air supply input fitting or vertical ASA be removed.
The coupler from the valve chamber and the LPR body are held in place by that fitting.

The pic of an exploded view of a Hurricane may help you see how the components fit together inside the gun. The basic layout for a Hurricane and Typhoon are the same.

I haven't been able to understand how the vertical ASA is attached to the lower tube, do I have to take out the valve, too?

The ASA screws into the body of the LPR, inside the lower tube.
The reg body fits over a valve chamber extension that we call the coupler.
If you are going to take out the reg body to work on it, it is usually best to also remove the valve and chamber coupler for cleaning and o-rings while you are into it that deep.
