Replacing front fender

Need to replace front passenger fender. Hit tree stump in road and had to replace radiator and support for it but when we try to replace the fender, it sticks up about 2 to 3 inches and the hood hits it in one place. Is there a special way the fender should be put on?

My son went around a curve one night and hit a tree stump that was in the middle of the road. It put the front bumper under the truck, busted the radiator, the framing brace that supported the radiator and the A/C condenser. There was even wood in the frame from the impact. He also needed to replace a fender from a previous accident. After getting everything installed on the engine, they had a problem putting the fenders back on.

The passenger's side fender fit perfectly except where the hood was hitting in one spot. The fender was about 2 to 3 inches too high and the guys were threatening to take a hammer and beat it down. But after getting a stronger light and searching the frame of the truck from all angles, they found out there was still one bolt that needed to be removed. Once it was removed, the fender went on smoothly. They didn't get to use the hammer like they were threatening!

2009 ford f150 4x4.makes a scraping noise in left front only in 2wheel drive not in 4wheel drive.wheel bearings and brakes are good.what could it be?


Noises are the hardest thing to chase down. Back up and think if there are any modifications you made to your vehicle. New, or larger tires, did you hit a tree limb in the road, or hit a pill of snow or trash bag in the road. All of these can jerk an inner fender loose enough to touch a tire when your driving. Check your calipers to see if a shim or squeeker or other hardware has come loose and got between the break pads or the rotor. Is the axle in good shape. Or maybe something has gotten shoved up in the fenders like a stick or anything else that can be picked up on the road. I sure hope this helps.
