    Usb port

    I tried plugging a thumb drive I to the USB socket in the glove compartment  it disappeared into the body work! Unconnected!
    Any ideas how to retrieve it and keep it there. I'm thinking of a short extension lead so ot doesn't get more stress.

     :084: :084: :084: You must remove the glove box, removing the two screws it has.
    Once outside, you must insert the USB socket inside the glove box and place the metal click it has and thus it is attached to the glove box.

    In any case, it's not a bad idea to fit a foot-long cable extender with a male/female USB plug so it won't come out of its housing anymore.

    Triumph saved a lot of money on cables.  :008: :008: :008:

    Probably lost the wire keeper on it, I lost mine and had to make a new one out of 1/16" stainless tig welding wire.
    Here's the link with the pictures of the clips with dimensions on page 2 toward the bottom of the page: https://www.triumph-trophy.com/index.php/topic,853.8.html

    Check out that post for proper way to remove the sockets that have this type of retainer.  Push them IN instead of pulling them away from the socket so that they stay attached to the socket itself.  That prevents losing them in the depths of the Trophy bodywork like I did.

    Thanks for this, I was thinking it is on a 3 month (and only just bought from dealer) warranty, may let them fiddle first , just in case it needs bits or anything is broken.

    Bear in mind that you cannot buy the retainer clips.  There is no Triumph part number listed for them that I was able to find, which is why I made mine.  Not difficult at all, but easier with a vise or two really good pliers with one of them being a needlenose.

    I did this twice. The second time I was being as gentle as I could. Got my mechanics to put it back in. I just gently inserted an Apple cable (for my phone) and leave it there permanently. Not a good design IMHO !!

    It won't come out if it has the wire clip installed properly.
