    Default Replacing Right Side Cargo Box

    I am looking for some guidance on the best and easiest way to replace the right side cargo box. The shop manual shows the procedure for removing and disassembling the entire rear cargo module. However, trying to figure out if there is a way to pull this off without having to remove the entire rear cargo module.

    There is a video somewhere on Youtube where another ryder documented taking the rear cases off to get to the compressor. Might try looking for that. If you don't mind my asking, what needs replaced? I ask this because we broke the plastic on the hinge on our RT in 2015 and I made a kit to repair and strengthen the hinges. It worked so well ours is still in service 3 years later.....with the broken hinge. The kit is about $100 and will do both sides.

    This is the video I was talking about. Take special note at the 18 minute mark on.

    The side cargo box is just the internal plastic box under the side luggage door. The rear cargo module includes the both side luggage boxes, the rear storage compartment, passenger backrest, etc...

    How much Tupperware needs to be removed to remove the rear fender? I know I will need to pull off the side panel to get to the cargo box. Just not sure if I need to remove the rear storage compartment to get the rear fender off.

    When I was at the factory ( BRP ) in Valcour' for the Home Coming I saw an employee put the entire rear section on ( for an RT ) with either 6 or 8 bolts .... You will need a 16 inch +/- extension with a wobble joint to get the bolts above the tire ........ PS He didn't have a tire on at the time ........ Mike
