I have searched here and all over the web regarding this. How do you remove these things? From what I can glean, you remove the nuts from the inside of the wheel tub (in other words, put a socket on the nut, turn, and snap the stud) and remove the assembly. I have an 88 XK and I need to remove the rear flares for some bodywork.

Some of the the studs on the brackets will break when you remove the flares. I suppose you could go to the stealership and grab your ankles while they sell you new brackets. But what I did (before I removed the flares permanently) was drill out holes where the broken studs were and just got nuts and bolts to hold them on. It worked pretty well.

Thanks. That's what I'll do then. In fact, I'll leave them off so long as the tires don't extend past the wheel well.
