This is the 17 + wee 3 section so comparison to earlier models may not be applicable at all.

When you do get the fender off, throw away that pesky #4 and use a SS bolt, washer and Nylock nut. Then if you ever have to take the fender off w/tire on, you just reach behind the fork with a wrench and grab the Nylock.
