Fender Flares

I am trying to remove the Fender Flares from my TJ. I have the front driver side off... but the rest all have screws that are not coming out...they are spinning behind the fender wall.

Any suggestions???? Thanks!

you have to reach behind and hold the plastic clip while you loosen the screw. On the back ones you'll have to remove the wheel well liner to get to them. Hope that helps.

Are you removing them to replace them, or to paint them?

Quadratech and 4Wheel Parts sells the replacement fender flare hardware. If worse comes to worse, you could take a pair of wire cutters and clip the plastic nut across the middle where the screw comes through then replace them with the new ones. This is what I had to do on my YJ to get the old flares off.
