Changing 2 indpendent parts to instances of a generic.

Our organization is new to Windchill, and we're going through the growing pains of learning how to use it. We are currently using Windchill 10.1 M030 in concert with Solidworks 2013. The issue is that I have 2 independent parts checked into a product that should have been checked in as 2 instances of a generic. I know how to add instances of a generic now, but I goofed originally and don't know how to fix it and avoid uniqueness issues.

Is there a way to correct this issue so that:

1. The Number, Name and Org ID attributes for the 2 independent parts are carried over exactly to the 2 instances.

2. I don't have to delete every instance of a parent assembly where one of the 2 CAD docs was used.

Any help would be appreciated.
