Re: espace front o/s wing removal

here u go
1.take the wing mirror off with 2 torx screws under bonnet and 1 allen screw behind the mirror when folded,lift the mirror out of the way

2.remove the riveted platis trim under the arch,you may want to jack the car up and take the wheel off before this,make sure to use an axle stand

3.near the door hinges under the wing theres a 10mm nut that has to be undone,and 2 rivets on the plate near there aswell.

4.undo the bumper under the wing so you can pull it out of the way

5.under the bonnet,release the clip for the indicator and take it out,also unscrew the plastic trim ontop of the headlight.under where the indicator is the wing is joined to front panel via a torx bit,undo this

6.pull back the rubber window trim at the top.

7.all thats holding the wing on now is bonding which is in a couple of places near the front of the wing,an area near the platic air intakea large piece about 6" in from the front of the wing and all the way along where the window meets.i used a knife to get the small pieces cut and some wire to get the part thats 6" in.this gives u enough room to pull the wing out slightly and then get your arm up into the top of the wing with a knife and cut the bonding all the way along and the wing should pull off.
