This the way I do it,
open the drawing in Solidworks, (the drawing not the part)
then go to file and select pack and go, then go to the SAVE TO NAME tab and rename both files with the new part number
hope this helps

Thank you, it worked!
Another method is to open the part and the drawing, rename the part and save, rename the drawing and save. When you rename the part with the drawing open, SolidWorks updates the drawing to link to the new part.
A third method (that I am not familiar with) is to use SolidWorks Explorer.
