Question How to replace front wing 2005 Grand Scenic?

My wife hit our 2005 Grand Scenic at the zoo over the weekend (hit the ranger's Land Rover, which had zero damage). I want to swap the front wing if I can with a used wing, since it looks as though it's a bolt on. So my questions are:

- Would a Scenic front wing fit my Grand Scenic?
- I can see 3 bolts along the door hinge, 3 along the engine bay and 3 in the inner arch. Are there more to remove?
- Do I need to remove any other panel/parts off before I can swap the wing or is it a simple off/on job?

Any help will be much appreciated!

Re: How to replace front wing 2005 Grand Scenic?

you will probably need to take the inner arch splash guards off from the damaged wing, along with the headlamp, its a fair chance the bumper will need to come off as well.
there will be a bolt or 2 under the end of the bumper and headlamp. you can get the splash guard plastic plugs for about 0.50 each from dealerships.
over all its not too difficult to replace.

as to scenic/GS being interchangable i dont know.

Re: How to replace front wing 2005 Grand Scenic?

I would reckon that the scenic.grand scenic front wings are interchangeable - its all from the front wheels backwards where the differences are.

As to mounting points, wait until the new wing arrives, then inspect it - it will outline where the existing points are on your car, which should in turn mean you can determine what needs removal, and the order to refit.

As a guesstimate, I'd say front wheel, wheelarch liner, possibly undertray, at least.

I'd also recommend securely raising the front end to allow for greater access.



This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
