    05 R1200RT left combination switch removal

    It seems that I have one screw left behind the ESA switch box. Does anyone know how to get at it?

    Thanks

    There is a small Philips screw on the front side of the ESA switch box, under the bar. Very difficult to see, but you can feel it with your finger. Remove the screw, and the ESA switch cover will come off, revealing the screw you are looking for (I think).

    There is nothing. Other than the ESA switch and a switch blank for a second switch that whole ESA cover is smooth as a baby's butt. It must pop off, but I afraid of breaking something without knowing where to pry.

    No need to pry on anything. I can barely see, much less get a picture of the screw, but maybe this picture of my #1 Phillips driver on the screw will help you find it.

    The driver shaft is between two wire bundles. You pretty much need to do this by feel, or with a mirror, as the instrument panel and fairing keeps you from putting your eye where it can see the screw.
