Front rotor covers

Postby rexles » Mon Jul 09, 2012 6:04 pm



95 wing with the chrome front rotor covers. Need to take them off to inspect front pads. Looks like two bolts on the bottom, but after I take them out it feels like there is something on the top part holding them on. Don't want to crack the plastic so I don't want to pry on them too hard.
What else holds these on besides the bolts??

OK
I figured it out. There is another bolt hidden under a removable part of the fender. :oops:

Be careful replacing that cover - it is held in place with only one grommet, and it likes to push it through when reinstalling - so that cover can then fall off easily.

I had exactly that happen on my recent trip. I didn't loose the cover thankfully, it actually stayed tight but the grommet was gone. Was checking my speedo cable and must have pushed the grommet through. I find putting a little ArmorAll on the grommets helps the peg slide though easier. This would be a good location for a mini Rudy panel keeper kit.

That's what I've got on mine.
