The Difficulty in Replacing Plastic Panels and Help Please

Post by PCXWAX »

Hello All:

I bought a right side upper fairing piece for the PCX, as the original has a crack in it.

I have followed a few videos and a step-by-step on this site for removal. However, in the process, I started breaking plastic rivets and making things worse, so, I abandoned the project.

I had a HECK of a time for some reason putting the meter cover back on (two hours). I have included pictures, it is not seated properly and appears buckled. It looked sort of like this before I took it apart, but I think it looks worse. Do any of you have the same problem with your PCXs?

Does anyone have a video for reassembling the plastic parts? I see a lot of disassembly, and the manuals I am reading are a little confusing and difficult to read.

Anyway, I have included attachments of what is in front of me. Meanwhile, I am out four plastic rivets (does anyone have the part numbers for these?), I still have a crack in the fairing, and now I have a rattle in the dash!!

This is disappointing and a confidence blow. The dealer charges $160 per hour. I must admit, I have little patience and I do not want to destroy this scooter because I'm inept.
