The official name would be the fender. The panel above the rear wheels are referred to as the quarter panels. You will probably pay a lot more money than you need to by ordering an OEM part online. I would call your local salvage yards and ask them if they have a fender off a similar car. I think the 1999-2005 parts are interchangeable. It will still need to be painted by a trusted paint shop but I still think you will save money and your son's car will still look real good!

SOURCE: no shock absorbing going on

sounds like it is now time for new shocks. they are not to hard to install if you are mechanically inclined,, if not - if you stop by your local Midas* shop it should only take them about an hour to replace. the cost of new shocks depends on what quality and dependability you are looking for.
always ask about warranty when buying shocks. also when you get your Jeep worked on the mechanics will also be able to tell you how well your front brakes are holding up and most shops will grease all your bushings and they do a good job of getting you up to date on other parts that might need some service in the near or distant future,, always ask questions to stay informed about your Jeep.
Have a great New Year,

SOURCE: right front fender hit wall now the car won't

Your emergency, " fuel shut off switch " has most likely been activated. It's a saftey feature, that is very sensitive to vehicle impacts, and is designed to prevent fuel fires in the event of an accident.

That is the first thing I would have checked.

I hope this helps.

My front driver side tire blew out the lug nuts and the tire shout out. I need to replace the fender and studs. Could you tell me how to replace the fender?


The fender is bolted to the frame on the top, front, bottom and also at the rear, by the door. Just loosen all the bolts holding it on, pull it off and put the new one back on with all the same bolts. Also, the top bolts on the fender are hex type bolt heads.

My grand limited jeep cherokee shakes when I am going over 45 mphs and I hit a bump in the road. How can I fix it. I had the track bar replace front end alinement two new tires tires balance and rotate now...


Hitting a bump and then having oscillations of the steering whell is a sure sign of worn bushings, tie rod ends or an internally worn power steering box. The only way to find out is to jak the front of the car up and then rest the car on jack stands from the FRAME of the far. Then grasp each tire / wheel at 3 and 9 o'clock pushing and pulling while checking for any signs of movement or looseness. Your checking the ball joints, control arms, wheel or spindle bearings and tie rods for wear. Also grasp the tire at 6 and 12 o'clock positions and check for movement in sterring components. The people that did the alignment should have mentioned that you had steering or suspension component wear. They also should have stated that they can not do an alignment without repairing / replacing the worn components. Any wear in steering or suspension parts will cause the symptom that you described. If you just had the alignment.... take the car back to the shop and have them re-check the suspension parts for wear. Most alignments come with a 30 day warranty.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Hit curb while turning, tire rubs firewall


If you did not damage the frame, you more than likely damaged the lower control arm (a triangle shaped aluminum part which mounts to steering knuckle(tire side) and two bushing mounts (To frame) Check the condition against the undamaged side. If the control arm is damaged see if you can get one from a junk yard. If you do replace any part yourself Get an alignment immediately after repair.

Hit on right rear at wheel well, wheel pushed in at top what could be the problem?????thanksComment posted on May 11, 2200+9-


I don't understand your question fully (Hit?). If you were involved and a collision and your tire rubs on the fender, get the fender fixed ASAP! Tires can get peeled like a banana if they come into contact with any sharp piece of metal, and if its rubbing on the inner fender, then friction heat caused by this can cause the tire become weak in that area and subsequently blow out.... If that is not the problem, or case then her are more causes for tires rubbing...

Tires "Out of Alignment", non-factory rims and/or tires, wrong size,width, rim "off-set" etc., suspension coil springs and. or shocks (car sitting lower than usual), twisted chassis due to accident or other impacts
