97 buick la sabre , I have removed all bolts on


You are correct it is connected with two plastic elbows the will almost always break when you remove the assem. If you have removed all the bolts you should be able to wiggle and work it loose by gently prying on it, just look at the direction of the elbows and work it in that direction, but i highly reccomend replacing both elbows.

Need driver side front quarter panel for 1995


While all those parts are available, if there is really that much damage i'd say you may be better off looking for a new car. The doors and front fender bolt on, but the rear quarter panel is spot welded in MANY spots requiring a lot of work to properly replace. You will probably find the best overall deals at the local bone yards. You may be tempted to buy parts online but keep in mind shipping those heavy parts can cost as much as the part. You can use a site such as copartfinder.com to locate a junkyard near by that has the parts you need.

Driver door on '86 Porche 944 will not close properly


If it's bolted on, check the top hinge bolt for being loose. there is an adjustment slot the bolt can slide in. It's a easy fix. If it's welded on check the top hinge weld behind the fender. Mine came apart at that spot (previos owner rewelded prior to my ownership). You will need to remove the fender to get in there to weld. The hinge is thicker than the sheet metal it's attached to.

How do I remove a wrecked front fender assy/quarter panel?


The front fenders are connected to the A pillar above the the top hinge, at the bottom of the rocker panel seam, three bolts pass through the hood hinge support in the middle of the fender, four bolts on the radiator support, three vertical bolts on the top radiator brace, and one bolt at the rear of the wheelhouse to the cab body. Yes, the wheelhouse is spot welded to the fender and must be removed with it. Remove all the bolts listed as well as the bolts retaining the splash shield. The splash shield is a plastic liner connected to both the wheelhouse and the fender. Remove the headlight/cornering lamp assembly. The best way I have found to do this is to loosen the bumper to framebrackets and let the bumper assembly sag to gain clearance. If the upper bumper cover is removed to gain the clearance needed you will more than likely need to get a new cover as the nylon clips have a tendency to break during removal. Once the fender/wheelhouse assembly has been removed use a spot weld cutter to separate the wheelhouse from the old fender. Check the new fender for clearance and fit on the vehicle. Make all the needed adjustments to get the fender to fit correctly. Remove the fender and attach the wheelhouse. This should be done by spot welding. It can also be done using bolts. If using bolts place some 3M double stick weather strip adhesive tape in the seam to prevent direct contact of the parts to prevent rattles and squeaks. Drill the new fender to match the holes made by the spot weld cutter in the wheelhouse. Use stainless bolts and lock nuts so that the assembly can be services if needed. I would also recommend using Wurth Rust Inhibitor on all the seams to prevent rust and once cured it is an excellent adhesive and will reduce noise coming from moving body panels. Good Luck. It is not as bad as it sounds. Take your time and it will be worth the effort.
