No, I don't believe you can.

"As a result of all this hardship, dirt, thirst, and wombats, you would expect Australians to be a sour lot. Instead, they are genial, jolly, cheerful, and always willing to share a kind word with a stranger, unless they are an American." -- Douglas Adams

Assuming its not soldered you can..

But its a pain in the butt, and its not worth it, and the chance of it not being soldered is almost 1%
