Remove Front Wings (How To Guide)

Hello Again Guys

As usual the front wings are a bit crusty on my 320 (year 2000)

Is there any guide or video showing how to remove them and replace?

They are not rotten really, but it's a case of repair and touch up, or replace with used Ones

Not sure which would be easier for me, but any guide on how to get them off would no doubt help me make the decision

I've been looking for info myself and found this


though he already has the headlights and front bumper off, not sure if they have to be fully removed first.

Thanks for that mate

Just had a quick look at my 320

And I don't have any Black plastic strip to remove at the bottom to reveal the lower bolts

But I do have a long sill of course, so I imagine it's the same principle?

Just need to work out how to get the sill off to access the lower bolts :/
