I have a 2019 Vespa Primavera Touring, I am going to attach a photo of it so you guys know which model it is. I am replacing the throttle cable and have to take off the plastic glove box and am struggling a bit.

I watched Robot's video on it but I am not sure if I should be pulling on the piece.

So I took out the 5 screws that attach the plastic to the frame, and then I started pulling but it seems like it is still not very loose. I am very scared to pull harder cause I already snapped one of the mirrors by pulling on it. Does anyone know if there is any more screws or bolts to remove or any tips/tricks to remove the plastic area.

On my ET4, it helps to push the lock in with my thumb to free the box. A gentle wiggle should loosen the grip. Perhaps the Prima is a little different.

I found that when removing the glove box plastic, it's best to start at one of the bottom corners and slowly work your way up.

The Sprint and Primavera have pressure clips that hold everything tight. Watch Robots video and at 4:30 he shows you what to do. It takes a bit of a tug to get them loose. What where he grabs it for each clip. Be sure to protect your footboard.
