    Chris--after removing all of the bolts, you may have to do a little bending/wresting to free the liners . On my car, they all just come right out real easily except for one , which is always a bit more resistive to coming out. Just be patient and don't wrestle so hard as to crack the fiberglass.

    The trick to removing the rear wheel fender liners is:
    1) Remove all of the bolts
    2) Slide the bottom of the fender well's front inwards so that it clears the rocker panel's lip & the fender lip just above the rocker panel.
    3) Rotate the front edge downward in front of the fender well's lip & slightly inward.

    The entire fender liner will pretty much rotate right out this way.
