Tools needed -

10mm Rachet and Socket
10mm Ring End Spanner

theres 2 located behind the door, open the door wide, the top one can be accessed by a socket on an extension, the bottom one can only be reached by a spanner.

3 Along the top

Image

theres 3 just under where the sidelight sites, 1 behind the sidelight, 1 that bolts the headlight to the wing, and one behind the front bumper side mounts.

Image
Image

and finally, one on the sill.

Next, you need to remove 3 plastic trim screws on the inside of the wing, these can be an absolute ARSE to get out! Just chew them to bits to get them off, afterall, a new set is a couple of quid from halfords.

And Finally, Remove the mudflap! and the wing can now be removed

Quick question, do you have to remove the side skirts if you have a VT?

Yeh you do mate. It's easy, just undo all the screws, and slide it forward and it slips off the clips. ;)

Then cross your fingers, toes, ears, legs (and testicles if your clever) and pray theres no rust lurking under them (the skirts not your testicles :D )

you can hand the bumper off. But this will twist your bumper bar
