IIRC, the face pops off and you clean up the water damage on the contacts.

Was just fiddling with mine a few months back. There are 6 plastic tabs (2 on top, 2 on bottom, 1 on each side) to release under a layer of tape to get it off. Be gentile with the tabs, and replace the tape on reassembly (or it may rattle).

Used replacement HD radio faces usually run between $50-80 on eBay.

Basic black 1981 Tour Glide Classic named Alice - She's a sleeper project.
