Replacing Front N/S Wing (A Panel)


New to the forum, looking for help with my girlfriends Mini. (2002 Mini Cooper)

Looking for info on replacing the Front Wing or A Panel (Classic Mini Owner)

Is it bolts or welded? Easy or hard job to do?
If it's bolts, where are they located etc please

It's not too bad, all screws and nuts. The biggest pain is a torx screw on the bottom of the panel which won't want to move. Once you've removed the indicator you'll find another torx screw behind it and a 10mm nut inside towards the door. There's a couple of screws on the top which are visible with the bonnet open and a screw inside the wheel arch, you'll have to remove the arch liner to get to that one. From memory i think that's it.
