Pack and Go Part keeps reference to assembly

Firstly:

I have an assembly on 9 or so parts. The parts all link to the assembly so changes made to planes will change dimensions of parts.

 

My Problem:

One of the parts is needed in a new assembly. I cannot make changes to the part because it is "read-only" and any changes made will make errors in the assembly.

 

So I decide to pack and go the part adding a prefix. When i open the part, the dimension is still read only with a tie back to the original assembly.

 

When I click the dimension, I can manually remove the "read-only" setting and do as I please with no effect on the original part or assembly.

 

But this process becomes cumbersome when it needs to be done over and over for a lot of parts.

 

Is there a way to remove the reference automatically when pack and going?
