Step 1: Remove Horn Cover

Step 3: Separate the glovebox from the scooter

Start pulling the glovebox away from the legshield at the edges, slowly at first.

Many things will catch on the glovebox, including the top of the coolant reservoir. Other obstacles will be the ignition cylinder and the lip that usually fits under the headset. Much wiggling and some gentle bending of plastic parts will be necessary.

Eventually, the glovebox will come free, although there will still be some cables connected to the back.

It's a good idea to put a soft cloth on the floorboard, because the bottom edge of the glovebox is sharp and will scratch the paint.
