wing/fender stuck

So I have removed all the top screws the three back ones ,the single one at the tip that joins to the badge panel and the majority of the wing is free and loose however the small flange that runs along the side of the headlight to the tip is proving reluctant.

any tips or advice appreciated

There is a support bracket that holds the bottom of the fender/top of the bumper/valance to the body that needs to be removed as well. See here:

Iíve found fishing line is invaluable when taking body panels off. First it cuts through any sealant so you donít end up bending a lip fighting against the bond when you remove a panel and second, it finds any and all fasteners that youíve missed as you pull it through a join. My 2c GL

I don't know if the 924 is the same, but on the 944 there is a screw that secures the front of the fender to the nose panel. You need to flip up the headlights to access it. (You can flip them up manually, remove the rubber cover on the headlight motor and twist the knob).

9FF mentions the sealant: there is a good amount of sealant on the mounting flange at the edge of the hood (where all the screws are). 3M makes a product you can use to replace this (scrape old stuff off, reapply before mounting fender). It is for vibration dampening. There might be some sealant in other places too.

From http://www.n5mbm.net/images/Porsche924Project/fender%20bolt%20locations.jpg comes this little jem. Of course, there is one missing location and that's the bottom of the front where the valence and fender meet.

just an update got the wing removed today it was nothing other than the heavy underseal on the arch side of the wing holding it, gave it a few runs through with a stanley knife and it fell off so all good.

wing has a few issues though its been patched previously at the bottom and the front flange is also gone not sure whether to replace the wing or get the body shop to sort it out. would have liked to keep it original. also few bits of surface rust to sort out nothing major.
