Don, That looks like a finely engineered item.
I do take both sides of the position and give credit where credit is due. If I find something well thought out, easy to service and disassemble and reassemble if needed, I put 2 thumbs up and say, " now that was a good design"
This is a story to illustrate a bad design which drove me nuts at the piss poor engineer that caused me to wrestle with a job that should have taken 1 minute but turned into maybe an hour to fix.
I was trying to disassemble the combination tail/brakelight/inner rear fender skirt/frame that houses these parts on an early 2000's Harley Davidson motorcycle. I wanted to disassemble the tail light and fender skirt etc to do a thorough cleaning of the parts and then put it back together as I wanted to make bike remain as clean and new in the years to come. The issue I encountered was brought about when I discovered they used a knurled brass cylindrical insert that was encapsulated in plastic within the tail light assembly. Then as I tried to remove 2 bolts, 1 on each side, I was able to get 1 out but the other seemed to hold fast to the insert. The more I worked to loosen the bolt, the more it just spun inside the plastic. Now what?
My solution was to take a Dremel tool to the plastic to expose the ferrule insert and grip it with pliers as I loosened the bolt completely.
After getting everything disassembled, I decided to strategically remove plastic around the inserts on both sides to create a recessed access area whereby a nut could replace that stupid insert and a wrench or socket could be used to hold the nut while tightening the bolts that held the assembly together.
Gee,,,,,,, WTF was some dumb cluck thinking? A simple nut and bolt from the get go, and I would not be needing to tell this story.
The sequel to the story is, a few years later I took a look under the fenders of some newer models. The company changed the design. Something tells me I wasn't the only one to experience spinning inserts.
Don,,,,,,,,, the funny thing is I bet you know what happens to 2 fasteners, one made of steel which is threaded into another made of brass.
My solution was to replace them both with Stainless steel fasteners. No more headache.
Something's broke on your end then.
