Re: Wing Removal


Big Al,
I have removed all of the bolts apart from the one which is accessible
through the hole in the wing where the rear light fits. This bolt screws
from the wing into the body, as opposed to through the body into the wing. I
can't get at it with my 10mm wrench or a socket. I think I may beable to
work the wing off as the bolt only seems to clip the wing on, not passing
through a hole in the wing , just a notch.

Thanx anyways
Damian
