GT side skirts removal and installation?

Hey guys, I have a 1991 GT. I want to know how to remove the GT side skirts because I have little bits of rocks in between the body and the side skirts. I want to remove them to clean it and to get rid of the rocks because the rocks are causing a gap. How do i remove them and reinstall them. I heard that they are a three piece.... is that true? What tools will i need?

I read on a different forum that u basically just unscrew the bottom and lift upward and they come out. is that true?

ALSO if i only want to remove the side skirt that is right below the door, not the two duct pieces, is there a way where i just remove this piece or do i have to remove everything?

Installation instructions?

Thanx guys!

A couple of sockets, Phillips Screwdriver Flat Screwdriver is basically all you need.
To remove the Front extension you need to remove about 4 nuts.

To remove the floor side molding you'll need to remove about 4 screws and a couple of push pins, then slide the molding toward the front of the car enough to get the floor side molding out from behind the lower front quarter molding and then push upward on the floor side molding to release from the thin metal strips.

You can just remove the floor side molding without removing anything else.

The diagrams came from my 1989 Mustang Shop Manual.

oh, i should have visited my shop manual. LOL. Just to confirm something. For the seats. We just unbolt the four bolts holding them down and they should come right off rite?

On my 89 there are 2 nuts (threaded stud will stay in the floor) in the front, and 2 bolts in the back.
Once you remove the 2 nuts and the 2 bolts the seat will come right out as long as there aren't any electrical connection like the Lumbar for the seats still connected.

oh cool. sry to be a bother but for the connectors the guy i bought it from said the car has wires below the seat. He swapped in 2001 mustang seats with power everything. They arent hooked up. Will the 2001 seat cables hook up to the original 1991 ford connector? or what....? thanx

My best guess: I doubt seriously that the 91 connector will be a direct fit for the 2001 power seats.
