speedometer gauge

I have a 2004 Heritage & the glass on the speedometer looks dirty on the inside.
Is there a way to remove the glass lens? I'm sure it's factory sealed to keep moisture out but it still looks like you could remove for cleaning & re-install and reseal it. Local dealer said it was not removable & suggested buying a new console. Drives me crazy cause I see it all the time
Any suggestions?

Thanks

Re: speedometer gauge

Making the speedometer "tamper resistant" has it's disadvantages and the dirt behind the glass is one of them. Only alternative is to buy new after certifying you are the owner and the old one exchanged as there have been cases where people swap out new speedometers to hide the mileage of their bikes and such.

Re: speedometer gauge

You may try a speedo repair facility. They could remove/clean and reinstall it.

Possibly some place like these...
