Hello Everyone, I've found an excellent replacement drivers side front fender for my recently acquired W124 diesel sedan(rust in the fender arch ). The fender is at a pick and pull lot. I have used the search function and the online repair manual and now know how to remove the fender. My question is: how do I remove the " cladding " at the fender bottom without breaking it ? This needs to be done to access the bolts at the bottom of the fender. The fender and "cladding" are in perfect condition and the correct color so I would like to preserve the condition of the parts as much as possible. Any suggestions as to how to perform this task would be much appreciated. Thanks, Tony V.
