While a joint made with self-piercing rivet is not usually considered a removable joint, there are various options in case of needed repair or re-working of the joint for changing a component. The choice of the technique needs to be made on a case-by-case basis after the consideration of the access to the fastening point.

Drilling, pulling, piercing or punching may need to happen to access the existing component. And then there are multiple possibilities for joining the new component including rivet replacement, screwing, welding, and bonding.
