How to remove the front wing with the bumper still attached.

Fig 1 Remove the screw inside the front wheel arch helps if you turn the wheel inwards.
1

Fig 2 above that remove the 10mm nut or screw which ever your car as
2

Fig 3/4 at the rear of the front wheel arch peel bacl the liner and you will see two 10mm bolts these will have to be removed if a mud flap is attached this too will have to be removed.
3

4

Fig 5/6 use a long reach 10 scocket and remove the bolts keep safe for replacing later.
5

6

Fig 7 both bolts removed
7

Fig 8 remove the upper wing bolts all but the last one at the front
8

Fig 9 leave these two bolts for now one wing and one slam panel bolt.
9

Fig 10/11 remove the bumper top bolts/screws up to the middle one over the front grill which i think is four or five in total
10

11

Fig 12 you can now tug the front bumper out and towards you careful not to catch the wing if its to be used again ? if so maybe best to tape it up.
12

Fig 13 between the bumper and the wing gap you will see another 10mm bolts this needs to be removed also
13

Fig 14/15 again you a long reach 10mm socket
14

15

Fig 16/17 Open the door and at the top between the gap above the top hinge you will see yet another 10mm bolts remove this also.
16

17

Fig 18 inner wing above the door hinge bolts removed and put with the other to use again later when wing is replaced.
18

Fig 19 remove the 10mm slam panel bolt
19

Fig 20 Gentley pull out the bottom of the wing from the body be careful
20

FIg 21 Lift wing up careful over the lip of the inner wing ridge
21

Fig 22/23 You should now be able to see the side repeater slide it back and remove from wing recess, remember this will be easier for you as i am using one hand the other holds the camera even better if you have someone to help with this process from start to finish.
22

23

Fig 24 Remove the last bolts which you should have loosened before at the beginning
24

Fig 25 Remove the wing from the car carefully.
25

Fig 26 wing removed ready to do your work or replce the wing with a new one if the old one was damaged.
26

I hope this as helped you with regards to removing the front wing without having to remove the front bumper.

just to add a bit if I may.
looking at the 8th picture, you may find washers under the wing to lift it. No idea why but they were colour coded when I took the wings off my 1.8.

HI Ron.
Thankyou for your kind remarks, members may find it easier if they remove the bumper completely as the above is only a quick version of removing the front wing. bumped up as Frank as recently been asking

Default Thanks once again to Arctic

[QUOTE=Arctic;2762025]How to remove the front wing with the bumper still attached.

Many thanks again for that procedure. The rust bug has finally eaten through the repeater mounting area, so the wing I have waiting will be fitted - when it cools down a bit.

My car looks to be the same colour as the one you showed in the proc, as a coincidence. Other than the wing, the body is holding up very well.

Underneath is not the same story, sob.

And just to let you know, your solution to the end popping off the drivers door lock cable is still going strong. I fitted the crimped end as a temporary measure, but it still works after all this time. Marvellous.

Anytime I do any work on the Rover, I check if you have done it first, as doing that makes the job so much easier than any manual I have ever read - the big Rover one included.


Best, Frank B
