Wing / Fender removal help please

I am busy fixing the rusty bits on my 2001 face lift and I have bought a second hand wing/ fender from Ebay in the same colour . The bolts on the wing look fairly straight forward but the removal of the sill/ rocker panel looks tricky. I have tried to find out on the internet on how to do it but have not found anything on how to remove it. I would be grateful for any help in the removal of the sill/ rocker panel

the sill covers / rockers don't have to come off to remove the wings/fenders. take the wheel arch liner out and the bolts go down into the sill on the offside uk drivers you have to remove the washer bottle just one 10mm bolt and it slides forward you will have to remove the bumper and chances are you will need two new wing to bumper mounting plates as they will be rotten and the bolts will snap.
