    Mana dashboard open

    Hello guys. I am new as a owner of Mana 2011. And I love it.
    But I have a small problem. Nothing much but I saw that I
    have some "stain" on my dashboard. On the inside.
    It is quite bodering me.
    Does anyone know how to open the dashboard and not damage
    the whole thing...

    Hello,

    it is relative easy. You need small torx screwdriver, wide chisel, sharp knife, black silicone with aplicator, paper tape and a lot of patient.
    - remove dash
    - remove screws (5 ones) from rear side of dash
    - put chisel to gap around between both shells of dash, and try to move both half apart. Repeat around the dash, donīt use high force. Gently, more attempts are better.
    - after some minutes you reveal silicon glue btween halfs, lets cut it by knife, move chisel, and repeat previous steps.
    - after removing top half, remove the rest of silicone glue from glue track of both parts.
    - top one put under not so hot water, luke warm. Very gently wipe inner surface, it is a rest of antifog coating, will be dissolved by water.
    - dry it, and wipe with soft cloth. Donīt use gasoline, alcohol, etc, you can damage it.
    - before assembly, cover both shells by tape (protection of silicon).
    - blow out dust particles, check if Lens is clean
    - apply silicone in bottom shell, directly in glue track. Dont overfill it.
    - last check of clean, then push top to bottom.
    - tight all 5 screws back
    - wipe out silicone, if any is pressed out.
    - put it back on bike

    Enjoy. You did it, you are allowed for beer(s).

    There is no guarranty, you can damage your dash: thatīs a fact. Be carefull, please.

    Great guide nedory, thank you.

    I fried an indicator driver in my old dash, now I'm tempted to look inside...
