removing front passenger fender on 1990 964

I am removing the front fender. I have removed all necessary hardware from the fender and underside along with the headlight assembly and front bumper is off as well.

What is the best way to cut the old undercoating to release the glue like hold it has on the fender? I was able to get the section loose that connects to the trunk portion but the back side is hanging up. I did also remove the allen bolts under the window sill.

Do I have the remove the oil lines (passenger side) to get into that seam to cut away the factory undercoating?

ALSO: What is the best way to remove the side skirts along the bottom? I can't figure out how those clips work.

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks,
Bryan

as for your oil lines most of the time no you don't have to remove them .
rocker covers clips and screws hold them on .
fender we use a long handle utility knife like they use for removing the glass on cars to cut the chip guard away from the panels . you will also find a little spot weld were the two bolts are for the fender to cowl panel . we take a heavy putty knife and slide it between the fender and cowl and hit the putty knife with a hammer to cut the spot weld .

Thanks for the info. I did locate the spot weld. They stated there could be another spot weld in the bottom of the fender by the door sill. Does this ring a bell at all?

Also, I will try and cut that out with a utility knife... hopefully I can get enough leverage and access without removing the oil lines. It seems to be harder to get up top inside the rear portion of the fender where the oil lines come from below and then bend to go along the top.

Any other thoughts on this?

Thanks,
Bryan

as for the oil lines some of my guys do remove them because it just makes life easer for them but i always try and leave them . most of the time i will remove the clamps that hold the lines on were the rocker is that ways you can pull the lines a little to access the fender bolt .
if i rember right it's been a hole two and a half weeks from the last 964 we had in the shop but i know of no other welds porsche puts on there fenders . just a crap load of chip guard .
it gets in between all the seams of the fenders so even after you cut it you will still have to play around with the fender to remove it . just don't bend the fender when your pulling on it .

I got that SOB off... grinded the weld with a rotozip. Came of pretty easy once glue was loosened.

Thanks for the help.

PS. I did loosen the clamps on the oil lines and detached them from the oil cooler and it was plenty of room to wedge a small pry bar in there to help release the glue.
