Re: 156 Front Wing Replacement
Agree with last comment.......also captive nuts have a nasty habit of breaking....
But basically remove front bumper - or at least the bumper to wing bolts on the side to be changed, remove the wing inner liner - a tight fit(!), remove all the bolts holding the wing to the inner wing and support strut, scrape / chisel away all the sealant covering the bolt halfway down the rear of the wheelarch and remove it, if its a Veloce remove the sill moulding, then remove the bolt holding the bottom of the wing to the front of the sill, then struggle like H*** with the stupid little phillips screw on the door step, round it off and then chisel/grind it away........then spend ages chiselling through the sealant holding the bottom of the wing to the inner wing.....finally succeed in prising the wing off and try to remember not to throw it away in triumph until you've disconnected the repeater lamp wiring.....
Replacement, as they say, is the reverse of the above...though probably with less swearing ;-)
