Open which ever front door is on the side of the wing your going to change. You should see about 3 or 4 10mm bolt heads for the wing. Remove these. Locate and remove the bolt (all 10mm i think) at the bottom of the wing ( you may have to remove you side skirt if you have a ST). Open the bonnet and remove all the bolts that the bonnet was covering. I cant remember if you have to remove the indicator as there might be a bolt behind that - pretty sure there is. Remove the inner wheel arch (black plastic jobbies) and this will give you access to the last couple of bolts holding it to the bumper. Obviously reverse procedure to fit new one. Leave the screws loose untill you have the alignment / gaps sorted.
