Front wing removal; headlight out to remove

I'm just about to replace a nearside front wing with one from a car of the same colour. Car is a 1993 2.0 with standard Sacco panels. As well as the bolts inside the bonnet, which other bolts are hidden away and what do i need to remove to get at them? I've removed the indicator to reveal the bolt at the front of the wing and the side repeater. Do I need to remove the headlight or can I leave this in situ.

Also any tips on removing the Sacco panel without breaking the clips?

Thanks

theres a bolt just behind the end of the front bumper.............and 3 bolts down the gap between the door and wing.................as for sacco panels,remove the 2 screws from the lock end and just pull sharply ;)

I think its best to remove the headlight too. I did on mine but someone may be along to say its not necessary.

There are some bolts at the rear on the wing down the a post. You have to open the door to get to them. Its a tight fit so use a slim extension bar on your ratchet. There are also some along the bottom of the wing under the sacco panel. I think there is also one under the bumper at the front accessed from under the car/wheel arch. This one is quite often rotten and seized solid.

I cant help you with the removal of sacco panels as mine is a pre facelift.

And my top tip is - wrap masking tape or heatshring tubing over the socket and extension bar to prevent chipping the paint.

I've taken them off lots of times and i still don't know what he means! :lol:

I can't recall any of the sacco panel having screws, aparet from one each on the doors.

I think he is referring to the screws at the rear edge of the doors, not the small panels on the wings which normally come free with a good firm
pull.

I'm still confused....the sacco panel on the door is retained by a screw at the base of the door. Do I need to remove the door's sacco panel to undo the 3 bolts accessed through the gap between the A-pillar and rear edge of the wing? Or can I leave the door panel in situ and just prise off the sacco panel under the side repeater?

Thanks again for sticking with this guys!

Thanks Shrekky. That's what I call a concise and very NON-confusing answer!

Will give it a go and see.

Removed the sacco panels - after taking off the old front mudflaps and throwing them away. Found all the securing bolts and got them out, ....had to remove the door hinge bolts to get to two of the three bolts behind the A pillar. Thanks again to all for your advice
