How to replace this particular cam You will not find in AMM or CMM, and nothing to do with SRM
In the US refer to AC
"a. Replacement of Parts and Materials. The performance rules for replacement of parts and materials used in the maintenance, preventive maintenance, and alteration of aircraft that have (or have had) a U.S. airworthiness certificate, and components thereof, are specified in § 43.13 and part 145, § 145.201. These rules require that the installer of a part use methods, techniques, and practices acceptable to the FAA. Additionally, the installer of a part must accomplish the work in such a manner and use materials of such quality that the product or appliance worked on will be at least equal to its original or properly altered condition with respect to the qualities affecting airworthiness.
b. Replacement of Articles. The continued airworthiness of an aircraft, which includes the replacement of articles, is the responsibility of the owner/operator, as specified in parts 91, 119, 121, 125, and 135; and §§ 91.403, 121.363, 125.243 and 135.413. These rules require that the installer determine that an article is eligible for installation on a product or component prior to returning that product or component to service with the part installed. Those rules also require that the installation of a part must be accomplished in accordance with data approved by the FAA, if the installation constitutes a major repair or alteration.
c. Conforming to Regulations. As part of determining whether installation of an article conforms with all applicable regulations, the installer should establish that the article was manufactured under a production approval pursuant to part 21, that an originally acceptable part has been maintained in accordance with part 43, or that the part is otherwise eligible for installation (i.e., has been found to conform to data approved by."
In short, the process should be your stores area will receive the part from the manufacturer or supplier with paperwork indicating that it is suitable for installation on an aircraft.
When replacing the part, you need to "use methods, techniques, and practices acceptable to the FAA". These would be your procedures manuals, which will cover specific type related manuals like the AMM, and usually also covers documents like "AC 43.13-1, Acceptable Methods, Techniques and Practices—Aircraft Inspection and Repair.". Many "common sense" tasks are not found in the AMM, and "Standard practices" like "AC 43.13-1" are used.
Unscrewing a cam latch, checking the new part is airworthy and the same as the one being replaced, and reattaching it with the same fasteners would fall into that sort or category IMHO.
This will depend as I indicated above where the aircraft has its CofA issued from.
