Is it not possible that those rivets do actually hold it together?

Great info, I'll have a nose around. Breaking the glue sounds sort of scary, will need a stiff glass of Jemmy before attempting that  :745:

Could it be a pressed-in fit? To ensure it remains waterproof?

If the rivet hinges are all that is holding it, it would lift slightly at the opposite side, is that side at all free?

It's in need of a good coat of looking at & a second coat of thinking over.

If you get to the glue part of dismantaling try a hairdryer or paint stripper gun to soften the glue .Warning don't hold in one place for too long :002:

Still no luck with this. I got chatting to a local Triumph mechanic and he confirmed it has glue, he was not to hopeful about me being able to open it. I am going to try putting it in a hot bath for an hour...
