Default Wing removal after accident

Had an accident in the 407 on sat night where I ran over a 12 year old girl resulting in a dented wing and a smashed windscreen. The girl had got off a bus and ran straight across the front of the bus and across the road and into my path as I was over taking the bus and she suffered a fractured skull as a result of the collision but is doing well in hospital. Im fine and all witnesses said there was nothing I could of done and all blame as been placed on the girl.

The end result on my part though is my 407SW now has a dented wing which is creased so beyond a dent puller and smashed windscreen. The screen gets replaced tomorrow with me losing 100 excess and now im thinking of just replacing the full wing but need to know how hard its gonna be. Anyone help?

Should be relatively straightforward - modern pugs are designed with the front ends quite flexi to absorb impact, and if I'm not mistaken should be a simple bolt off/on.

If you can get one in the correct colour you'll be on a winner.

Theres one on ebay that im tempted with (only 40 delivered) but don't want to have to half demolish the car to change it. Key thing I think is can I change it without removing the front bumper as that's a job in itself

Just had a quick look in Haynes and can't see any mention of wing removal
So much for it covering car maintenance.

Sureley its just a bolt off & On job if there is a piccy on the ebay page then you should be able to see how it goes and to be honest if its only 40 I would be tempted to buy it for bit of a gamble as at least when you have it there you should be able to see where all the bolt holes etc are on the new Part so you know where to start looking on your old one

Just had a look at the different ones on ebay and it looks like a bolt on Job but i think bumper removal is defo needed or atleast the side / corner moving so you can get at all the bolts.

It's easy. Just get the inner plastic arches off and the the front bumper.

A couple of bolts and undone...

Unbolted both mine when I repainted them so I didn't need to mask up the car.

Is front bumper removal necessary? I'm interested to know because I would like to change my driver's side wing due to rust. Ive seen a wing, same colour code, but dont want to remove engine and gearbox to fit it. Lol!

I would say it is. The bracket connecting the front bumper and wing needs removing and that one you get access to after removing the bumper. The bumper off job is very easy and don't take much time as the most time consuming is more or less removing the wheels and inner arches.
