Remove the 4 pop rivets with a # 30 drill bit.
Fix or replace the holdback as you wish.
Reinstall the bracket using four 1/8" pop rivets with a little sealer around the base of them.
Replacing everything except the metal bracket, is the way to go, as it's pretty cheap.
It's an Airstream dealer part.
