Drawing References

Question: If I have two identical parts and Part_1.sldprt is in a drawing with dimensions etc, and I want to stop referencing Part_1.sldprt in that drawing and instead reference Part_2.sldprt, (i.e. not lose the dimensions I have already placed), how can this be done?

I know I can use Solidoworks explorer to "replace" the part, but the effect of this is that all assemblies etc referencing this part seem to be affected and all I want to affect is the drawing I am working on.

Help please...
