This is a generic procedure. Some vehicles may require the bumper, headlight, headlight trim or cowl panel (beneath the windshield) to be removed, before the fender is removed.

  1. Raise the hood and remove the bolts along the inside top of the fender.
  2.  
  3. Remove the bolt at the rear bottom of the fender, near the rocker panel.
  4.  
  5. Working from inside the wheel well, remove the bolt facing the door at the door pillar.
  6.  

Some vehicles also have a bolt at the very front of the vehicle near the headlight.

  1. Once all the bolts have been removed, lift the fender off of the vehicle.
  2.  
  3. Installation, use a sealer along any seams within the wheel well or engine compartment.
  4.
