    Replacing front wing? hard?

    Hi i am about to buy a replacement wing off a breaker on ebay for a 2001 A3 TDI.

    Ive had a look under the bonnet adn looks like just a few torx bolts holding it on.

    Can anyone give any advice? does anything else need to come off at the same time?

    Thanks
    Ben

    This pic might help. When I first bought my car I got it cheaper due to a damaged wing.
    Its very straight forward, however you also need to remove the bumper and wheel housing liner, which are both also easy to do. Let me know if you need help with those.
    Most if not all the crews are T20 torx. The wings don't need to be sealed with any panel filler, just bolted.

    Here are the bolt positions:
