Having had an advisory on my last MOT for a corroded n/s wing, I decided on getting a replacement.
Managed to get hold of one, in the right colour, for the right price a couple of weeks ago (and a couple of headlights into the bargain).
Did the GTA mod on the headlights, and the new sealant is now curing in the wash-house which houses the central heating boiler (toasty).
So jacked up the car, took off the n/s wheel, then wheel arch liner, and set about unbolting the wing.
Got the nice big ones off, even the one that's covered in so much gooey protection I couldn't even identify what sort of fastner it was never mind the size, undid the bumper....GTA lights in the wash-house, remember
, and got all of them off, except.
Having a spare wing to look at makes the job easier as you can see where it's bolted on. All going well until I hit the last Torx screw under the side-skirts...rusted up and now very, rounded.
There's also an inch of a rusty spike that may well have been a thread and nuts, that is also difficult...
Now left with a car in the air, and no chance of getting that pesky screw/bolt combo off.
So I can either i. just do the lights and keep the rusty wing (after a rub down and anti-rust painting), ii. wreck the last fastners in some way then bodge the new wing on iii. ask for some AO advice.
So iii. comes first.
