yes. there is one bolt at the very bottom (need to remove side skirt)

remove marker
remove side skirt
remove washer tank. youll see everything then

I did mine and had a bit of trouble with the bolts on the underside. There is one for each panel and as I recall I had to drill those out. It also took a bit to get things aligned so the gaps were even . It wasn't hard work but a bit tedious. Samtrack might have more info for you as he did his more recently than mine which were quite a few years ago .

I took one off a long time ago and it was a pain in the ass.

I think I had to take the cowl off first. Its been a while.

We did Frackys....it was a biatch! Hope yours are made better than his, the flange's at the bottom and sides where they bolt was really thin and had to be modified. BTW, he had the vented ones, might be why?

Good luck! Mine were a PIA
Like Randy I had to drill the lower fastener out. I helped a friend with his fiberglass units and the fit was awful! They needed about 6 hours labor to fit them up and fill the gaps.

As others stated removal was PITA w/drilling involved. Read about the issues in CF fitment so chose having body man shave holes instead.
