    Good Evening Everyone,

    Hello...I am looking to remove the triple clamp shroud on my '08 Heritage to get to my aux lamp switch to fix an electrical problem - help!

    I removed the detachable windshield and one phillip screw thinking the left tin shroud cover would come off, but no luck.

    I am unable to locate this in my service manual.

    the 2 bolts on each side of the forks that clamp the light bar on need to be backed off, then undo the 1 button head on the left tin and the 2 on the right side. if you want to take the front tin off you have to remove the head lamp

    You shouldn't have to take the winshield/running lights mounts completely off. Just loosen up enough to slid the rear tins out. They are slotted...

    If its just a lamp out, I would pull the bulb first and make sure its good still. I thought the same thing with mine but it was bulb.

    Mad Dog Jim,

    Both of my lamps are out. I did notice that the wire connected to the toggle switch behind the tin shroud was loose/not securely connected.

    Thanks for the reply.
