How to remove front fenders?

Removing the front fenders from an 88 944 and have removed all the bolts but cannot get the fender off. What am I missing? Any help would be appreciated.

Did you get the ones that bolt to tha A pillar? There are 3 back there that are burried in the under coating. There is also one in the front where the header panel connects to the fender.

When was the last time you changed your timing and balance belts and/or cam chain and tensioner?

Roger that. I had to use a utility knife to cut "plugs" out of the undercoating to get a socket on them.

Also, there is a putty-like adhesive in the joints. I used a putty knife to separate the fender from the chassis.

At least on the later models the darn antenna isn't in the way.

I am amazed you can get around at all. If I didnt tell you exactly you would be lost. It is by Fairview and Belfast, on Conway Ave. You crack me up.

Yeah Dan it was... Looks like the car was sandwiched. All-in-all, for $500 you can't beat that deal! New fenders and other parts are en route... Will be a nice daily deutschebag with A/C for work/school driving. Teener can be a funrun/AX car
