Hi All, I want to remove the glove box door to get it chromed. Can't figure out how to remove it from the box. It's hard to see in there, but it feels like maybe it held together by cotter pins? Any guidance would be much appreciated.

Greetings from Olympia Scooter Company,
The Glove Box Door actually is secured by 2 rivets and not cotter pins. The Piaggio Part Number is 97523 and requires quantity 2. You will need to remove the entire glove box to get to them which is really easy.
There are 4 8mm nuts securing the glovebox to the legshield. It should only take about 10 minutes to remove it. Then you will be able to see the rivets on the backside. The original rivets were pinged into place and so you will need to cut them to remove the glovebox door. Cotter Pins can be used once the door comes back from the Chrome shop or get new rivets and ping them over.

There's no reason to take it off if you want to chrome it. That will just ruin it.
