No one has any suggestions?

I have tied some weird things to save some routing before. If it’s a pin for pin compatible part that you are replacing the old part with, then going into ECO tool bar and using the change component option is a good way to go. The thing I have run into with this is that if you use the same part/decal name the design will refresh from the layout and not the library. In this case I make a dummy decal in the library and switch the component twice.
If you are importing your new part already that is pin for pin compatible but you are saying that is comes in with the incorrect rotation you can select it and hit ctrl+r to rotate it in order to untangle the nets.
If the new part is not pin for pin compatible then you could just do the same thing as above but when the new part comes in the nets will be in a knot. Just click the last segment or two of the trance and delete that instead of the whole net. Then you will just need to reroute the last little bit of each net.
I have forwarded you suggestions to the Engineer that requested the information.
Thanks for helping out with this.
