How do you remove a windshieldfrom a 1984 GoldWing Aspencade?
I just bought this bike. ---It has a broken windshiled. I have ordered a new one that should be arriving in a couple of days.
The problem is I don't have a clue as to how to take the Metal Shield Guard and the old broken windshield that fits behind itoff of the bike
.--- Any help from anyone who knows how to do it will be greatly appreciated!

It's WAY easier than you may think. Bend all that rubber around each mirror back. Go ahead !! BEND !!! It won't break, rip, etc. You'll see some screws in there. Take all of them out on each side. I think there are 4 on each side. Whatever the amount, take all of them out.
That'll free up the metal guard under the wind shield. Not sure about your particular year.............you may have to either just lift the metal guard off or slide it off. If it does slide, I don't remember whichway. ( To the right or to the left. )
Once that is done, the same goes for the windshield. The screws for the windshield will be just as obvious, but be more careful when removing them. There are probably 5 large screws to remove. Before removing, TAKE NOTE of their placement in their respective slots. High or low in the slot. It'll help when placing the new windshield in.
The old windshield will also probably slide out of some slots. Again, don't remember in which direction ( to the right or left ) it'll slide out.
If the old windshield has been there a very, very long time, it may take a little "persuasion" before it starts to slide out.
Good luck. Hey, if I did it, anyone can. Just take your time.
