Front wheel arches replacement?

How easy is it to replace the front wheel arches? I’ve just bought a 2007 clubman and the FNS arch is scuffed. Would I need new fixings or is it a straight swap

I'm hoping you mean just the trims.

Take a look here

Went through a few inches of standing
water at about 80 and the plume of
water popped the left front arch almost
all the way off. When I got home I
had to back up and it went under the
tire and came the rest of the way off,
and the tire crushed the reflector and
Put the old part back on with just a
few clips pretty easily.
Ordered the arch, reflector, light bulb
socket and connector and clips.
Looks to be an easy job with a trim
tool to get the old clips off and pulling
off the fender liner will make getting
the very front bottom clip in easier.

BTW, Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tires just
slice through a few inches of water
without any drama.
