My pappy bought this '04 vtx1300c but the turn signals are falling off/apart. We have tried to push them back together but they don't stay. Any ideas to fix (glue maybe?) Or should we just buy new ones on Amazon?
The previous owner didn't know what they were doing and took them both apart to change the bulb like a dumbass. Why? Not sure they worked fine. We have tried to disassemble and reassemble them but for some reason they just won't stay back together. We think the right side one is mostly there but it slowly comes back apart over a few days.Amazon trash won't help you. If it were mine id take it apart and put it together again. That usually fixes things or at least helps me gain further insight into the problem.
The question is, why is it falling apart? All you/we know is that it's falling apart.
Looks like the rubber is hanging on just fine, the rubber is what appears to be what is screwed into. Looks like the rubber plugs into the plastic a different wayHave you tried tightening the bolt (16)? is it stripped? If so, might try helicoil. Not sure what it screws into (type of metal) but possibly drill and tap for a larger diameter. There are also metal inserts for stripped out metal. Definitely Loctite (threadlocker) if not stripped.
