    Welcome to the forum, Cruiser

    GLOVE BOX DOOR/HINGE

    REMOVAL
    1. Remove the outer fairing.
    2. To access glove box door fasteners, pull out screw cap cover below hinge.
    3. Holding locknuts at front of inner fairing, loosen hinge screws (T25 TORX).
    4. Hold glove box door closed as hinge screws are completely removed. If not held closed, door will pop open as spring loaded hinge is released and door may be
    dropped to the floor.
    5. If hinge replacement is necessary, remove plastic barrels to release hinge from door.

    INSTALLATION
    1. Place spring inside hinge inserting spring pin into closest hole. With coil and one spring pin positioned inside
    hinge, second spring pin is outside.
    2. Place hinge into position capturing free end of external spring pin between ribs molded into glove box door.
    3. Install plastic barrels to hold hinge in door. Slot in barrel prevents interference with spring pin installed between ribs of door. Push barrels in until tight.

    NOTE
    Install new glove box door bumpers in inner fairing if damaged or missing. Insert tail of rubber bumper into hole, and moving to front of inner fairing, pull anchor through hole.

    4. Place glove box door into position against inner fairing. Holding locknuts (with flat washers) at front of inner fairing, tighten hinge screws (T25 TORX).
    5. To conceal glove door fasteners, snap screw cap cover into place below hinge.
    6. Install the outer fairing.

    Thanks. Yeah I already found that post. It didn't give any info on removing the door. In the mean time I figured out how to get the door off without removing the whole fairing. I'll try to find a replacement spring since none of the HD dealers I've been to seem to have any info on it.
    Thanks again.

    Hey Chopper, thanks. Good info. That'll help. I assume this spring is stainless.

    Here's the parts break down that Harley has, could the spring come as part of the barrel hinge? These part numbers are from 05 but should be the same.
