This should be pretty straight forward, except that depending on year model you may need to disarm the airbags to be safe. Start by removing the inner fender (not absolutely required but helps I think), then bolts in headlamp area, then bolts hidden between door and fender which you get to by having the door open, then bolt at bottom edge of fender, then bolts along top edge of fender, then two or more right in cowl area, and carefully lift off, making sure to retain any shims you find which were used for alignment. Tape these and mark their location for reuse.

SOURCE: replace front fenders 1999 wrangler

Hi! In your case you have to read this STEP by STEP instruction how to replace fenders


  1. First, raise the front of the car and rest it securely on jack stands.
  2. Remove the front wheels (the fender can be removed with the wheels on, but you'll have limited access to the fender bolts -- we recommend removing the wheels).
  3. If you're removing the left front fender on a 1968 through 1973 model, unplug the horn wires and remove the horn. Don't hang the horn by the wires.
  4. Remove the bumper and bumper brackets
  5. First remove the headlights and turn signal lights and wrap the wiring up out of the way.
  6. Remove the nut, washer and bolt that attach the fender to the running board.
  7. Remove the bolts and nuts that attach the fender to the body.
  8. Remove the fender, the beading, and the rubber spacer between the fender and the running board. Note: The rubber bead has cutouts around the bolt holes (it doesn't have holes in it - just cut outs).
  9. Inspect the rubber beading and the rubber spacer washer. If they are cracked, dried, or deteriorated, replace them.

  10. Check the threaded holes in the captive nuts in the body and clean them up with a tap if necessary. Lubricate the bolt threads.
~~~ Fender Replacement -
  1. Place the fender in position against the body without the beading and loosely install one bolt at the top to support the fender.
  2. Now start the rest of the bolts. Tighten them just enough to hold the fender in position.Install a new rubber spacer washer between the fender and the running board, then install the bolt, washer and nut that attach the fender to the running board, but don't tighten yet.
  3. Hold the new beading around the body immediately above the fender, and mark (with chalk) the locations of the bolts. Cut slots in the portion of the beading the extends down between the body and the fender to accomodate the bolts, then push the beading into place with your hand. Make sure the slots in the beading slip over the bolts. Be extremely careful about the fit of the beading as you gradually and evenly hand-tighten the fender bolts a few turns.
  4. Gradually and evenly tighten all the bolts.
  5. The remainder of installation is the reverse of removal. GOOD LUCK thanks

SOURCE: 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.

Where is the battery located on a 1997 plymouth breeze?


Drivers side fender well. Jack up the car and remove the front tire. There's a section of the fender liner with a big picture of a battery on it. You can remove that part of the fender liner via some thumb twist screws and get to the battery.

Its easier if you remove the left front tire. In front of the wheel well, you will see a plastic cover held in place with several clips that can be removed by turning the clips 1/4 turn to left. pull the plastic cover off and you will see the battery. Use 1/2 in. socket to remove hold down, and 5/16 socket to remove cables. Total time Approx. 15 minutes.

Front fender removal


Hiya... here's the details of fender removal/installation:
the left-side (same for right-side) fender has 6 bolts attached to the "sidebody" frame.
The bolt location:
3 are on the top fender-easy to find when hood is open,
1 is hidden at the rear of top inner fender-just open the left-front door wide to find it (early equinoxes had foam-like noise absorber material in it, just remove it from underneath fender after the wheelwell liner is removed),
1 bolt is hidden at bottom of front fender area at headlight/bumper area-you need to remove plastic wheelwell liner to gain access,
1 bolt is hidden at bottom of rear fender area where the black plastic rocker panel meets below the fender...
THIS area is probably the most difficult task to do since it requires you to remove a small bolt found on the front of rocker panel behind the front-left wheel then use a flat screwdriver or clip removal tool to pry open the black plastic **clip's 'dime-sized' head prior to pull out the clip's body (it has 8 clips underneath the chassis) then use your hands to grasp the rocker panel underneath, pull it down-toward you...this should do it....USE CARE during rocker panel and clip removal/installation so you don't break the clips!
It also has yellow plastic clips inside the rocker panel (used as a guide during installation into rocker sill holes-use caution not to break it)
**note: early equinoxes had rocker panel clips that you can actually pull it out from the hole, while later equinoxes has 'built-in' clips inside rocker panels that you don't see the clip heads below it due to engineering part design change**
Be sure to exercise care when handing this task!
