Hello, I can guide you with the next steps. Of course, be very careful so as to not deploy the air bags.. You need to remove the grill. At the cowl end by the windshield wipers unsnap that plastic end piece. Remove the coolant overflow reservoir, and air filter box. Remove the inner wheel cover, it has both plastic "blind rivets" and screws. Now from under the truck, you can start unbolting the fender. There are also some bolts at the door jamb. This is for the passenger side, on driver's side also remove that thin brace above the battery, the battery,and tray. Unbolt the fuse box. Remove the hood release cable where it mounts to the fender. Unhook the washer hose. Unbolt the PCM, and set it aside, but DON'T unplug the electrical connector.Now unbolt the fender pretty much the same as the passenger side. I've tried to give you both sides, I hope this didn't confuse you, if you need any clarification, just ask. I'm snowed in so I'll be here, good luck.

    Hello again. Right, but to get to the bolts, you need to remove that inner liner. The you can reach the bolts from underneath the truck. Driver's side, or passenger's side?

How to remove a L/Front fender on a 1996 Mazda 626

Fenders are bolt on. Remove the plastic inner wheel well. Rais the hood. Remove bolts along too, in door jamb and inner wheel well. Most vehicles also require removing the front bumper cover, headlight assembly and sometimes the grill. You should be able to see the bolt hole locations on the replacement fender. Once you install it do not tighten up the bolts. You'll need to align the fender til the hood to get a narrow consistent seam then tighten the bolts.

How to remove 99 gp front Dr side fender. Hood needed off? Bumper off a must?

Two bolts from the door jamb, 6 (iirc) across the top of the fender, I can't remember how the hood is attached on that car but I seem to remember not taking it off. Bumber is easier to go ahead and remove, trying to only half way remove and you run the risk of cracking the paint or the bumper. Take the i wheel and inner fender well off as well. I don't recall any bolts there (but may be wrong been a long time since I did a fender on one of those) but I know it's easier with it out of the way.

Detailed instructions on front bumper removal. NOTE: From all the videos, it appears the CAB is different than the sedan. An example is the grill does NOT come up with the hood.

Remove wheels. Remove fender liners front. Remove three nuts per side from inside fender wells. Remove fog lamp grilles. Remove vertical bolt just inside grilles--pointing up. Remove two screws per side under hood near front of fender. Put milk crate under front bumper. Remove belly pan first. Slide bumper forward onto milk crate, disconnect headlight washer line at quick disconnect if so equipped. Disconnect fog light connectors. Remove bumper.

How do Ireplace front fenders on a venture van

Should be able to find all the bolts to the inner fender panel and remove, then any holding fender to grill or bumper, then under hood bolts along top edge, then open door (carefully) and remove any bolts between door and fender, and may be one more at bottom rear of fender. Keep all shims and mark them to go back in same location, but be aware new part may not be identical to part removed, thus some further adjustment with shims may be needed. I often use masking tape on the edges of fenders and doors to help prevent chipping paint.

How to replace fender on 09 sonata?

Well just so you know when you take it to a shop. Unless you own the shop you get in line and there fore you don't get it done right away. And if you don't know what your doing you may do more damage to the paint and cost you even more money. So to answer your question yes the fender is held on by bolts clips and screws. And you may end up removing the hood and front bumper and inner fender to get the fender off. Then put it all back together to get the correct body gaps is a must so the hood and driver door opens correctly.

Hello are the steps to follow per All Data.

Release hood latch and open hood.
Remove the headlamp assemblies.
Hoist vehicle and support with safety stands.
Remove the five push pin fasteners attaching bottom of fascia/air dam to radiator closure panel.
Remove front wheels.
Remove front wheelhouse splash shields fasteners as necessary to gain access to bolts attaching front fascia to fender.
Remove the two bolts and two nuts attaching fascia to the front fenders (Fig. 1) and (Fig. 2).
Disconnect fog lamp wire connectors, if necessary.
Lower vehicle.
Remove two bolts attaching the upper grille support to the headlamp mounting panel at each side of the grille.
Remove bumper fascia from vehicle.

Position front bumper fascia on vehicle (Fig. 1) and (Fig. 2).
Install the two bolts attaching fascia to headlamp mounting panel at each side of grille.
Hoist vehicle and support with safety stands.
Install the two bolts and two nuts attaching fascia to the front fenders. The fascia should be flush to fender.
Install front wheelhouse splash shields fasteners.
Install front wheels.
Connect fog lamp wire connectors, if necessary.
Install the five push pin fasteners attaching bottom of fascia to radiator closure panel.
Lower the vehicle.
Install the headlamp assemblies.

The "push pin fasteners" are the pain you are having i believe. They push in, but to get them out you need squeeze them on the back & pull at the same time. If you happen to break a few, you can buy them in various sizes at the auto parts store. I hope this information is helpful, an owners manual will not have any info like this in it.

I want to remove the right front fender and would like to know where all the nuts and bolts etc. that need to be removed are and the easiest way of going about it?

I just did this.
Remove the fender liner
Remove the mud guard

There are several 6mm flange bolts with 10mm heads.
3 along the inside of the hood
1 behind the top of the door accessible with the door open
2 on the bottom of the door behind the mud guard
2 behind the bumper cover, the headlight is attached to one of these.
There is a screw holding the end of the bumper to the fender. Remove it and pull the cover away from the fender. There is a large plastic clip inserted into the fender next to the two bolts that holds the bumper cover but should release when you pull the cover.

The headlight has two dowel pins that insert into the fender, removing the headlight may be better but you have to remove the bumper to get to some of the headlight assembly bolts. There are 4 bolts holding on the bumper that are accessible through the turn signal holes. The bumper will "fall" about an inch and sit on some collar bolts so it can be lifted off without one side falling (a neat feature). The turn signal is held by one Phillips screw accessible through a special hole on the inboard side of the bumper with your longest Phillips screwdriver.

I need to change my quater panel and are no how

front or rear? The front one is easy and can be done with a ratchet and a 10mm and 13mm socket. there are bolt all along the top edge where it meets the hood, the hood hinge will have to come off along with the headlight and front bumper. there is alson a couple of bolts that are on the very bottom of the fender and the inner splash shield inside the wheel well will have a bunch of plastic clips that will have to be taken out. As for the rear one, it is welded on and will have to be cut off. I would not recommend you do this yourself unless you have experiance with cutting and welding
