    Instrument Facsia removal

    Hello Y'all,

    OK, I have a shop manual for my 2017 Triumph Trophy SE (the faster Pacific Blue kind), and according to it I have removed all mirror covers, the screws, and the windshield and it's rails, etc...to get the instrument Fascia off (working on installing a Triumph GPS mount project).

    The edges where the mirror covers go are loose, but it seems like if I keep tugging in the wrong directions, I'll break something (some hidden tabs) - something expensive to replace.

    So, does anyone who has ventured down this road before me know the trick to getting the center part of the instrument fascia to separate from the bike, like pull up, or straight out front, or down, sticks of dynamite, etc...

    Thanks.

    Have you removed the little black plastic screws ( Phillips type cross head )
    that go into the motorcycle version of a Rawlplug
    located inside the mirror pods, just above the Indicator retaining screws ?

    There is then an additional screw inside the mirror pod behind the folding arm that's quite
    fiddly to get at - using an Allen key you can only move it a slight amount each time,
    then have to re position the key.  Once they are out, also check the lower screws that are revealed
    when you remove the Glove box and Battery covers,

    With all the fixings removed, the whole panel should lift up slightly from the top to free it
    from the retaining tabs around its upper edge, and the lower edges have to manoeuvred
    around the mirrors by having the mirrors folded slightly out of their pods..

    Cheers  :821:

    Yes, I removed all those aforementioned screws (aka: British "fixings")....the manual mentioned the retaining tabs, but now how to do that that part, or exactly where they are...so, I'll try a little tugging from the top.   I'm afraid to try to pry it apart with a tool (screw driver) for fear of cracking the fascia's plastic.

    How do you disconnect the SAT XM Radio cable?

    I pushed on a small square 'button" and tugged on the wire, and tried prying the cap (wire going thru the center) - nothing.

    I finally tried taking a standard pair of pliers, put the inner grip jaws around the part where the button is and squeezed - which finally released the catch.  I'm starting to not like British engineers...

    We've not liked our own Design Engineers for many years!

    Although, it's more than likely these connectors are stock items from China.

    The manual for the Trophy is not very clear, but the fairing and facia are like a chinese puzzle box. The mirrors actually pivot in and reveal the screws to the indicators, remove these and you can get to the fairing etc. To rotate the mirror get your fingers behind the outer edge and pull, there is spring over center retainer but with a little force it will pop open revealing the screw underneath. Be sure to take lots of photos not only of the location of the screws, but also which screw goes where.
