Hey guys, I'm wondering how to remove the windscreen bracket. Obviously it's the center tab that mounts under the gauges I'm concerned about. Do I need to remove the instrument cluster?

Thanks!

I've just removed my BMW screen and the bracket in front under the gauges is just a clip and didn't need removing.

If it is the sport screen like mine you will have to drop the headlight down to get to the bolts under the gauges. The plastic cover over the headlight pops off of it's rubber gromets easy enough but be sure to lube the gromets with a little white grease or vaseline when you pop it back on to keep from having to force it on. Hope this helps. I love my sport screen , takes the blast off the chest at high speed and is so small you hardly notice it.

Not sure if we're talking about the same bracket. I didn't have to move anything to remove the screen's frame.

You need to drop the headlight, not the instrument cluster to remove the windscreen frame. Be sure to mark the height of the low beam against a wall before you remove the headlight from its bracket so that you can re set the beam when you re install the headlight.

Thank you all. Indeed I have to drop the headlight. Now if only the dealership didn't torque the **** bracket side bolts so tight..

If you are trying with an Allen wrench, you may find it easier to use a socket wrench with a torx head. You will want those bolts to be tight

I got them off, there was a lot of blue loctite on them.
Question, do I need to reinsert the bolts even if I plan to run without the bracket/windscreen? I've attached an image showing the exact bolt holes I'm talking about.

You better put the bolts back, just in case
