It should just have bolts inside the wheel well, and then have clips that hold it onto the body.
once you remove the bolts you will need to gently pry the plastic molding away from the body. I suggest a plastic putty knife. These clips should go through perferations in the body.
Let us know if you find something different though.

I just tried that, i also thought it would have clips, but it has screws from the inside. I'm going to have to take the inside panels off. the one on the front seems a little better. i just have to take off some of the engine stuff, like the storage box. it looks like i can get to some by using an extension. they have little holes in the engine box to get them off. thanks.

Well that doesn't sound like much fun. At least it's not so difficult to get at.

the rear one is the hard one to get to. so i will be doing this one this weekend, the front i did last night, it took about two hours to get all screws but the last one close to the door. i would have to take the whole fender off to get to it. but i can pull it away so that i can fix the small dent in front. I hope the back one i can get to all the screws. prob can because the rear fender will not come off, so they prob made it so i just have to take the insides out.
