Okay people, I'm sitting in my shed in Auckland, weather is a bit dodgy so decided to do a few goldwing related chores. I have exposed the base of the windshield to get at the five screws that enable me to remove said windshield. Here's the rub, none of them will undo. Really very very tight. I can actually turn them though but it feels as if something at the back of the screw is turning and they will not come out. Windshield is original and has crazed ever so slightly. I would like to replace it but cannot unless I can remove the old one. Any sage advice???

Oh, and as the are tight I cannot adjust the screen up or down.

Regards
Mark.

  1. Maximize the grip strength. If you can still grip the screw head with a screwdriver, try one last time to remove it by hand. ...
  2. Add material for extra grip. ...
  3. Tap the screwdriver into place with a hammer. ...
  4. Push down hard as you rotate. ...
  5. Heat the area. ...
  6. Cut a flat-head notch with a dremel or hacksaw.

If you're replacing the windshield, you don't care what happens to it, so try some PB-Blaster or Kroil on those screws if you think they're stuck due to galvanic corrosion. Try some heat if you dare, especially if you suspect Loc-Tite was used on them in the past.
