Buick Lesabre fenders and header panel repair

I was recently in and accident and my car was totaled and basically i want to try to fix it piece by piece at home if possible. i guess my question is would removing the old fenders and replacing them be something i could do at home? i also need to get the lights mounted along with header panel which would make the car drivable. i have minimal auto experience and no body work experience.i also need to know if there are any special tool i would need.

    Possible, but if fenders are tack welded in place it may be difficult for someone who has not done that before. Only other thing of concern is how straight the chassis is...don't want to do all that work and have it go sideways down the road (also makes hanging fenders a real "treat")

This is an easy thing you can do your self. Go to an auto store or Costco/Sams and spend $100s on a tool kit. Get one with wrenchs, socket and a screwdriver set. A can of wd40 a hammer and you should be good to go. I would go to a recycle yard and find one that lets you remove the parts your self, find the right model and start taking things off that you need. Do it this way and it will help you understand the process of what needs to removed in order. Take your time and buy a small fishing tackle box to put the smaller parts like nuts bolts and clips.Good luck

Best guess is a bad fuse. It's also the cheapest easiest fix which is what my dad taught me. Basically, when hear hoof beats, think horses not zebras. A Chilton/Haynes repair manual will provide a fuse panel map etc.

How do I fix the brake light on a 1997 Buick LeSaber.


I just did a 97 Regal yesterday and yes you are correct...the strip must be removed to gain access...depending on model you may have to remove the cushioning panel (piece of upholstery panel) on the inside of trunk lid...follow this video URL as it explains the removal better in video form than written..basically remove the 7 10mm nuts holding panel on, lower trunk lid a little and wiggle panel off, twist socket and remove to gain bulb access..install is reverse procedure ...Regal, Century and LeSabre are all same idea/setup Tail Light Change 1997 2005 Buick Century 2004 Buick Century Custom 3 1L V6

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

Yes, if it didn't do it before the accident but now it is then call your insurance co. and let them know it isn't fixed and the symptoms. It could be anything. A bent steering component, warped rim, etc.

1992 Lesabre Buick wheel Knocked off Axle


Wheel was knocked off? Front or rear?
Most definitely will be a wheel bearing involved.
The parts if it is just a rear bearing should be under $50 , Under $70 for the front, and do check the rotors and calipers and brake pads, that is a good hit . If you feel the need to change any brake parts, always change that part on both sides.
