cant remember exactly how to remove it but you will need to take off the plastic wheel arch lining too IIRC there will be a few bolts that you cant see.

they are that simpleford designed them to be cheap to repair in an accident so the wings just unbolt one tip mark arond the bolt holes before you remove the bolt to ensure the panel lines up 100 percent

shouldnt be any welds, if by any chance there is it should only be a spot weld.

ive done a couple of wings on renaults before, only thing i advise is that you put masking tape around the edges of your new wing and also on the edges of your bumper and door, atleast until you get it in place as it will save the possible scratches
