Fender Flare Removal

I bought a set of replacement fender flares and got them today. Does anyone know how you take the inner fender off to get to the back of the screws / bolts? This is for a 98 TJ

Shouldnt be any inner fender on the front...... on the rear just pry it away from the edge and stick your hand in there...a bit painful at times,,, but it will work

Certainly the OP is referring to the rear fender well liner.

Mine had a few plastic push pins that holds the fender liner to the body. Pry them out with a large flat scredriver that will allow you to pull open the fender liner more easily. The nuts on the back are just squares of plastic, so you can easily hold them with your fingers.

This was actually pretty easy once I took the Wheel off and could get to things. Just pulled the pins in the inner fender and it was easy to pull away to get to the plastic nuts. While I had the flares off I Clay Barred, Polished, and Waxed the body. Looks a lot better. Now it time to go get it dirty again!
