I own an '04 Heritage Softtail Classic and I bought a luggage rack that I'm trying to install. In the picture, I have to remove the screws marked as (1) but the lower screw is below the fender so I have to take off the sissy bar mount (2) to get to it. I think I'm going to have to remove the torx screws (3) but I'm not sure. Any advice is appreciated.

And the two stand off bolts between the two torx.

Where are your turn signals?

Do the two stand off bolts just unscrew, or is there a nut on the inside of the fender I'm going to have to get to? When I feel under the fender behind the stand off bolts, it feels like theres a retaining plate the the bolts screw into. Hopefully there wont be a need to drop the tire to get up in there.

The turn signals are on a crossbar under the tail light.

Thank you

No nuts. They are pemnuts captured in the fender.

Thanks bbally and oldredog77. I have it taken apart, thought I was going to break something getting those standoff bolts for the saddlebags out. Had to use vise grips to do it. I definitely need to clean up the threads with a toothbrush and WD40 before I put everything back together.
