    Question '05 RT glove box door

    2005 R1200RT

    Followed the thread to pull the plastics, actually read it this morning after getting most of the job done last night.

    Evidently there's something I'm missing as I'm trying to figure how to get the right panel pass the gb door.
    Are there screws on the door? Seemed like it was attached/hinged to the CD box.

    It's not covered in the thread BTW...

    If you are trying to remove the door, two screws facing horizontal hold it on under the outer edge ...and it does have to come off to get rest of panel.
    Those two screws are diff from the rest.

    ...that's what I thought, guess I didn't see them.

    You mean they are on the inside when you open the lid at the hinge.

    Doh!
    I missed this pic...

    I had the same issue first time I tried...no DIY back then, but had buddies that had found the process in '05.

    The door has to come off before the side panel will come off.

    The screws are NOT accessible from inside the door. You need to get to them horizontally from the outside edge of the panel you are trying to remove over the door.

    Yeah, I'll bet most of us hunted those things the first time we pulled tupperware.
    Got to get down low enough to look under and see them..

    I think some BMW designers must get preverse pleasure from their hidden fasteners- many of the bikes have at least one that is hard to see. We could start a trivia contest about which tupperware fastener is the best hidden. I think I'd vote for the side plastic one on the later R1100S. Often one sees the plastic mount broken because the tupperware was pulled off without removing that fastener- but they can generally be repaired by epoxy back to the panel...

    There is a video showing the Plastic removal on the MAX website. It helped me learn how to do it.

    Ours was broken on the 11S as well, and of the three I have worked on for club members, all had one broken off on that behind the badge well hidden mount.

    While doing an oil and filter change yesterday I also replaced the air filter on my RT. All went well thanks to the DIY sub-forum. All went well that is, until my T25 tool slipped and fell down between the outer side of the glove box tank and the snorkel. The darn thing must have gone to the fifth dimension or someplace where all the other dropped tools and hardware items go. I looked all over the bike's nooks and crannies using a flash light and poking around everywhere my hands would reach and never did find it. Looked at every inch of the garage floor and under cabinets, etc. with no luck. Where does this stuff go?
    No matter where you go, there you are.

    It's with that one sock (from each now-retired pair).

    The EXACT same thing happened to me. I now hold onto my tools with much more care. It's amazing to me how many inaccessible crevices, crannies, and cavities there are on these bikes just waiting to swallow small things and deliver them into oblivion.
