How to remove wing panel C5 X7

Post by osx » 06 Oct 2019, 19:27

Thinking of repainting one of the wings as the clear coat has gone in some areas and there are a couple of deep scratches. I would rather remove the part if it doesn't involve removing the bumper too. Any instructions?

You'll need to remove not only the front bumper, but the headlamp, scuttle seal, triangle shaped trims near the wing mirrors, and various other bits of sound deadening etc.

I've just been attempting some stone chip repairs on my wheel arch and later will have to remove one of the front factory mud guards as this has obviously been rubbing and caused some paint to chip there :roll: Having the surface a little proud will be better than rust though.
