  • 52 champion front fender won't come off

    - I'm pulling apart a 52 champion and have all visible bolts removed, and the air duct into the cockpit out (and the top bolt behind it). The fender's loose at the front but something is holding it around the hood hinge area on the firewall. Is there a weld there? Do I need to completely remove the hinge or is there a hidden bolt or something?

    thanks for any info!

    There are no welds. Have you removed the inner fender bolts to the firewall? And the hood springs? Antenna?

      Thanks - I'll check for any hidden inner fender bolts this weekend. Do you get to these inside the engine bay or through the wheelwell? I'm not saying anything else inside the wheelwell...

      Hood springs are off, I'll check the antenna

        I believe there are three inner fender to firewall, accessable through wheel well; also two from top with hood open on either side of hood spring.

          > The front (lower) air deflector also has some going into the front of the lower part of the fender.

          That was it - there was one at the bottom corner under the air dam. Thanks!
