Default Water closet wire chase cover removal?

Has anyone removed the overhead wire chase cover/cabinets in the water closet on a LXi? I would be interested to know how they are removed without breaking something. There are no hidden screws accessible from the outside so I am guessing the fronts are held in place by variable depth push in fasteners (Christmas trees). However, I can’t seem to get anything under the exposed lip to pry without damaging the laminate. Sorry for the dark pics. The overhead lights have been removed already.

Are you sure there aren't screws on the inside of the cover? That's how all my valences are held on.

Mine were set up where the cover (valence) has a screw strip on it. The screws go up vertically on the inside of the valence through the bottom cover and screw in to the screw strip - which is just a board attached to the valence.

They should go up vertically right behind the front lip.

David,

I tried to remove mine, also, but could find no way. I needed to get to the wire conduit, so did that by removing the light fixture. In looking at mine, it appears to be very solid. I'd guess they are screwed in at the ends, and not accessible now. I'd be interested if anyone has found the fasteners.

Got it! I removed the Thin-Lite and looked around with a small light and found the usual three inch “L” brackets that hold a bird together. Two brackets on each inside bottom and two higher up on the sides. The four screws that hold the end that butts up to the mirrored vanity had four predrilled holes through the glass! Some overengineering is on the verge of ridiculousness.

So far I have found EVERYTHING is accessible. Sometimes you just have to remove three things to get to that one screw... luckily, I’m removing everything so it doesn’t matter.
