Only the housing comes off, they are a sealed unit. Buy one of eBay if yours is bad.

no its not sealed to the glass, there iss a rubber seal between the glass and the white plastic housing.. the chrome bezel keep pressure against the glass to seal it up.

if you got a video, it wasn't my page.. I wrote up a whole paper on doing this to a Honda Shadow 1100. but yes the process is the same no matter what bike you are working on.

FWIW, I sanded my trim rings clean, masked the glass and everything below the rings and spray painted them gloss black. I think it looks good.
