Hello Ivan,

 

I have a question.....you say to remove the inner wheel housing. Do I need to remove the driver side front wheel/tire assembly? Or are you referring to the plastic skirt or fender well?

Expert:  Ivan replied 5 years ago.
The plastic inner fender. You only need to remove the wheel if you need access to remove the inner fender. The lower bolts are accessible from underneath and without removing or lowering the inner fender you can't get to them.
