    RXT hood problems

    First off, how do I tighten the mirrors? I assume there is a screw under the white hood. I tried to remove the white panel from the black one. I pulled out every screw I saw and still could not separate the two. What am I missing??

    Secondly, the gas strut came off the stainless triangular plate. Now that it is off I noticed the plate is incredibly loose. Is this normal? Looks like they could have designed that whole assembly a little better.

    On my 05 GTX one of the mirrors was loose and used to vibrate in certain water conditions there are two nuts or bolts holding each mirror assembly to the hood. The easiest way to access these is to pop the gauge cluster out it's held in with a rubber grommet and with a good grip you can easily remove it, leave the wiring connected and lay it off to the side.

    An update. I finally got around to tightening the mirrors. Easiest way to access the bolts is to remove the black plastic ring around the gauge cluster, it is just snapped into place. I screwdriver is all you nee to pop it loose. Once removed you will see (2) screw at the top of the gauge cluster. Remove those screws and the gauge cluster can be rotated back into the hood. Push the gauge cluster back enough to gain access to the (2) bolts that hold on each mirror. Once tight, just reverse the above steps. Should take all of about 10 minutes. This is on an 09 RXT.
