inner fender removal help

I began to remove to inner fender well on my 2004 f350 in order to get to the glow plugs but that has started to go very badly. Now all of the plastic screw heads that used to be phillips are stripped out and now I am worried that if I continue remove all of the screws holding it in place I will end up with all of the threads stripped out also. IDEAS???

I have never had to pull a inner fender on a 6.0 to do anything. The glow plugs are easy to remove in the truck without the fender being removed. Pull your intercooler tube and you can reach in and remove the harness and the glow plugs. I have also gotten into habit of just replacing the harnesses on customer trucks because they are either already leaking or will once you put them back in.

(Update!!)/ question

I got the harness off of all of the glow plugs. I don't know how to disconnect the connection between the harness and another set of wires. I think it involves something with a little red tab on the connector??

*another update*

Ok I got the old harness completely off!! and I am in the process of pulling out the old glow plugs now. I got the first one out and it was covered in oil until up to 1/2 inch from the threads, is this normal?? Also should I try and use an eye dropper to take some of the oil out of the hole before I put in a new glow plug? any answers now would be great!!
