Having trouble taking off fender flare

I'm trying to take off my rear passenger fender flare. I took out all the small bolts but it is still held on my something. Some type of glue I'm guessing? How to I free up the fender flare?

Thanks,
YJman

I took all 4 of mine off just by unbolting. Maybe previous owner added some glue to secure them?

If its the rear ones, make sure some of the bolts have not been screwed in so tight that they have been buried in the plastic inner liner..

This is what happened. 2 of the bolts were like this, but I got them cut out with a mini sawzall.

Thanks guys!

I had to cut off the plastic speed nuts to get several out of one fender last week, unless you use regular steel nuts or can make some out of ABS stock, be prepared, the dealer wants about $5 apiece for those plastic speed nuts. I had some 1/2 ABS stock so made a few and then used larger washers on the bolts to keep from pulling thru the plastic fender liner.
