If you mean the actual wheel arches, the bolts are underneath, run your hand under and you will feel them. they are held on by plastic nuts cant remember what size though.

you will need 8mm socket and a 10mm socket. first remove the arch liner by putting a screwdriver through the clip thingys, then pull out, remove 5 front fron arch and hey presto.

for the rear there is no liner so just undo the nuts behnid the arch and pull straight out

Its actaully easier to remove the whole wing, seriously. The inner arch liner is the hardest thing to remove on the whole car without destroying
