Fitting megane front wing

My front wing is cracked, I got the same colour wing from a breakers, I asked to take it off myself and I did but here was no door or bumper on the car. My question is do I need to take off the bumper to change the wing?

Not 100% but think so.
Look at the fixing holes, if some behind bumper, yes.
If not, maybe

Yes you Do, and the headlight too.
IIRC eleven fixings, some are plaggy, don't forget to disconnect the spot wiring NSF. Mainly clips on.
TIP.... put some carpet down, to rest the bumper on.
Dead easy the second time, worst bit IMHO is the undertray.

Re: Fitting megane front wing

Thanks Nottnoc I need to change a wishbone and the undertray has to come off (and stay off) anyway. Apparently the wishbones shouldn't be torqued unless the weight of the car is on them so I'm thinking I could jack the wishbone up until the car is just off the axle stand and tighten them that way?
