    Rear Inner Fender Wall Removal

    I am going to replace my front and rear fender flares and am asking anyone what tool I am going to need to remove the rear inner fender walls on my 04 TJ. Is there a thread out there where someone has already asked the questions?

    Tool?

    Clips - if broken where can I get replacements?

    Rear Inner Fender Wall Removal

    I pulled mine out then sprayed rust primer and bed liner inside and under the flares. Used a flayed flat head screwdriver intended for pulling plastic clips. The clips can be replaced at your local bestbuy.ca or automotive supplier just keep one to match up at the store - some reason prices vary for identical items depending on the listed intent on the package.

    I think I have info or pics in my build thread. Can't remember 100% - ADHD causes short term memory issues.

    i used to use a pair of side cutters to pull them out. the removal tool is sold at princess auto. the push pins are .20 cents each at parts source. and around a dollar at the dealer. just cut them and put new in

    Exactly what I did, used an old steak knife and cut them out. Pulled out the inner wall for now, installed the new 7" fender flares. Next I plan to clean the surface rust and then spray it with underspray before putting the inner walls back in.

    Side cutters work well. Don't plan on putting mine back in just painted black

    I've read on other forums the same. Clean up the surface and agree with you, paint or undercoat it black.
