Sounds like you have a body alignment problem. If you have the door open try to lift up on the bottom edge of the door. You should not have much play.

If you do have play you need a door hinge. It is also possible that you hit or were hit in the front and the front fender was slid back towards the door. There are shims in the joints and some of the shims could have moved or fallen out.

This is simple body shop work.

Fender removal


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.

My drivers side door hits the left front end panel when I begin to open it causing the panel to begin to bend in


Somebody has had a small front left corner accident, throwing off the door position or moving the fender back a bit into the door's arc of movement. You will have to take it to a dealer and have the door re-aligned and/or the fender adjusted. This is not an owner serviceable item.

How do you remove the rear fenders on a 2001 vw beetle do you have to drop the gas tank?


no the gas tank has nothing to do with it ..first thing is that the two rear fenders and rear bumper cover are bolted together and must be removed as a unit. First thing remove the inner fenders on both of the rear tires then look up and remove the T30 torq bolts and 10mm nuts on bottom the brake light housings must be removed from inside of the trunk there are 2 covers in the corners pop them out and ther will be a plastic knob remove taking care not to drop them then pop out lights with a small flat tip screwdriver unplug lights then take loose the gas door screw and remove clip holding the latch then pull out latch taking care to not break it. then remove all the screws on the outside under the rear deck lid T30 torq .gently pull on fenders and pull off the rear fender/bumper cover assembly taking care to not pull out oo far then take off 8mm nuts from heat shield on left backup lamp and unplug lights ..there u go the all u have to do is unblot the fenders and ur good to go

1994 Honda Accord 4 door. Fender removal to adjust door.


Should have kept going-it's just screws or bolts, but some are almost hidden-like front of fender and rear along door opening. Take off fender lining and look some more.
I sort of know what you mean-can be hard to get to the door hinges. have you tried like a universal joint in your ratchet and socket?

There are quite a few bolts on this fender. One on the bottom of the rocker, one between the the door and fender on the "A" pillar, one on the cal, one on the firewall then several on the inner fender and several on the radiator core support. after these are removes you need to take ou the head light assembly and you should have a fender brace under the front of the car. Hope this helps.

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!
