Removal of Glovebox Doors

I am getting ready to install locks on my 2012 roadglide's glove box doors (lock kit form Eglidegoodies.com), but for the life of me i can not figure out how to get the doors off. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance

The two nuts that hold the each door on the inner fairing. They can be accessed only from the inside.
You must remove the outer fairing. Then it is easy.

There is a rubber cap over the screw heads on the outside of the door hinge, so you need to pop off the rubber cap to turn the head of the screws while holding the nuts from turning.

Harley does not have any of those parts available separately. It was not made to be disassembled.

The bottom of the hinge on the glove box door has a cap that goes over the head of the screws that attach the glove box door to the inner fairing and the nuts are inside the inner fairing, the cap is why you cant see the heads of the hinge screws . If you just try to turn the nuts the screw will roll so you need to pop off the caps to access the head of the screws. The top of the hinge is part of the glove box door as far as I know.

The parts still can not be purchased from Harley. The doors are just sold as a complete assembly.
Anything can be taken apart. But they are spring loaded. This makes it difficult to disassemble and put together again.

I am ONLY talking about taking the glove box doors OFF/ON the inner fairing NOT the hinges off the glove box doors. Yes you can buy the 2 mounting screws with & nuts and washers and the screw cover caps separately, the hinges do not have molded in studs the hinges only have holes for the mounting screws to pass through (that is the way it is on my 08). You are correct that the hinge and the glove box door are sold as a complete assembly

I will have to take a closer look at the doors. I have some mods I need to do that require opening the fairing, so I can get to the doors that way. If the doors can be removed without opening the fairing I might save the lock project for a rainy day.


Thanks guys for the help...

I did not say you could not take them apart. If you take it apart, You will not find the parts, except the nuts and washers, sold at the Harley dealer. But you may look at your hardware store and find parts that may work, but they are Not from Harley.

Look in your part book (if you have one). Any individual parts that make the hinge assembly do Not have part numbers, including the "screw cover caps". I talked to Harley. The parts are Not sold separately. You Must buy the entire door as an assembly.
