The driver side front wing on my 2000 Corsa B has some rust damage and and I plan on swapping it over with one from a scrappy. From what I have read the front wings are meant to be just bolted on, but after taking a look my front wings are seam welded to the strut turrets. The welds are colour matched too. Has this been done by a previous owner or are the tutorials incorrect about them just being bolt-on? Or am I thick and the welds aren't on the wing (definitely look like they are though). Don't want to spend 30-40 quid on a replacement panel if I can't get the old one off.

Thanks in advance.
