I'm trying to remove the top trim on my panniers - removed the several screws on the inside face and it seems like that should do it, but it still won't come. I don't want to yank on it and break or crack something, so does anyone have any knowledge/ideas about taking this off?

Try some heavy dental floss to break the adhesive bond. Carefully "saw" back and forth as you travel along the trim.

I know they come off because Hannigan removes them and transfers them to the trike conversion. There are some hidden screws under where the handle opens up. Mine had little silver discs over them.

Maybe this will help.

Worked like a charm! Thanks a bunch; really appreciate the info. I'm planning on giving those, the handlebar covers and the fork bridge cover to a guy that does hydrostatic painting (a dipping process). Looking forward to the finished product!

Please post some pics when done, maybe in a new thread that indicates the refinishing of those parts.
