This was the first major thing I did to my road glide all by myself. It seemed like a huge and it was but, with help from this site and a lot of patience you can do it. The parts only go back together one way but label every single thing anyway. Give it a go and if you run into a snag ask for help here and you will get it. Best of luck

excuse me while I whip this out...

Take pictures. Before you take apart and while your working. Helps to return everything to it's right location.

Its easy:

Remove the 6 torx head screws and the 4 1/2" turn signal mounting nuts holding the inner to the outer

Grab the outer by the lower part below the headlights and lift up. While holding it, unplug the headlights and set the outer aside.

Unplug all the gauges and plugs on the wiring harness and the radio plug and antenna wire.

Remove the 4 nuts on the radio bracket and pull the whole inner off the studs using a buddy to feed wires through the inner while you pull it off.

Label each plug on both sides so you know where each mate is. That helped more than anything. Agree with taking pictures & note how the wire bundles are positioned. Thought I had mine right until it came time to put my headlights back in & couldn't get 'em in. It's really not bad. Just pay attention to what you pull apart & TAKE YOUR TIME on re-install so you don't scratch the new paint. Also put your hardware in separate bags & label them as you go.

Also. Before i pull my inner out, I unplug every plug in the bundle and stretch it out straight and zip tie everything together to make it MUCH easier to pull wiring through.

Pulled mine today - what about the hinges?

Tore mine down today. Took about an hour. Nothing too hard. Taking all this crap to be painted next week once I get my fender in.

I only have one question. What to do about the hinges and those plastic screw covers for the hinge bracket? Am I supposed to break them down? Or does the painter just spray the whole hinge connected to the glove box door? That question has been bugging me since I took them off.

Thanks in advance guys.

Take the hinges off. If you look close there are plugs over the screws on the outside of the hinge, just pop off the plugs and pull the screws.
