I have an '89, and the right saddlebag door has a hinge hanging loose. Looking inside, I see nuts welded to the hinges, with screws coming from inside the bag bodywork. On the front side of the right hand bag, both screws have backed out of the nut and need to be tightened back in.



Outside, I see a chrome strip, but don't know how to remove it. Do you just pry it off? My manual is no help on this particular operation. Just behind this strip of chrome, I see a screw, but believe it belongs to plastic at the back of the bag.



Sorry, guys, I'm new.....dumb questions abound during the learning curve! Thanks for any and all help.

Thanks, Bungee.......I was worried because it was adhering solidly, and I didn't want to break anything by doing something wrong.



So I pried and pried on the chrome strip, and it came free gradually, with a heavy white glue-like substance holding it down. Is this standard? And how do I now "glue" the strip back in? What product would be best?



Thanks for the help!

I used weatherstrip adhesive on mine, but it got to be a little messy. I have also used 3M moulding tape with excellent results.

Thanks, there are probably several options.
