The wing is definately just bolted on,but you'll have to play hunt the bolt!

If you've never changed a body panel before,then it can be quite a challenge.Not only do you have to find all the fixings(including removing the wheelarch undersheild,and possibly the bumper),you need to line the replacement panel up properly with the bonnet,bumper and door.

The ideal thing to do is find a car in a breakers yard the same colour as yours and just change the panel over.That way you save a fortune on getting a new panel sprayed.

As long as you take your time and are reasonably confident with a set of spanners,then it is a job that you can undertake.Just make sure you close the bonnet and door very slowly when you first fit the wing to make sure it doesn't catch anywhere.The best thing to do is get a couple of loose bolts into the wing to hold it in place,then line it up to the surrounding panels.A little patience will pay great dividends.

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
