Hello!
I hope to get help on replacing my front fender, the driver side. I have tried looking elsewhere on the tools needed and the directions but only found service manuals that I'm not sure if they have what I need to fix my crashed fender. I need to fix it before my parents get back from vacation. I thought I'd find help here, if anyone has any information please it would be helpful.
:(

Hi Erik...
Fenders are usually not a big problem...There are bolts under the hood...under the fender dog leg (behind the front wheels)....inside where the back of the fender attaches to the door "A" pilar (can be seen when door is open)... Behind the plastic inner fender betwwen the wheel and the door...and some probably behind the headlight ass'y.
Get a replacemement fender (ebay/rockauto/local salvage yard) and look where the bolts go on it... What about the paint to match the rest of the car?
Basic metric tools... Metric sockets,extensions, ratchets, open end wrenches...3/8" size and sockets 8mm~14mm should do.
