SOURCE: i need to adjust front left fender

this might be more than what you want to do but .. there is a bolt on the bottom of the fender near the door .. this is an important one to loosen.. you next loosen the one infront of the windshield .. which is top of the fender.. also there is one inside the door .. with door open look back in there you will see only one bolt there. Now you need to find a way to pull this fender back forward enough to pull it away from the door so you can operate the door properly.. We take the headlight assembly out and use a puller device to pull it back forward .. you can also tie this to a post or tree and lightly back up .. try this and see what you come up with .. tighten all bolts after you get it pulled forward or while you have it in a strain forward.. thanks jerry

SOURCE: sounds like tire rub when turning right or left

It may be your power steering. Try checking the level of the power steering fluid. If you are not familiar with where this is check your owners manual and it will definitely tell you where it's located under the hood. If the fluid is at a good level it is most likely something to do with your wheel alignment. This can only be checked and serviced by a licenced motor mechanic or specialist alignment centre.

Good luck

Take the fender off. then loosen the door hinge bolts. Move the door left or right up or down in or out until the crack between the door and the pillar looks straight and even. Then do the same with the fender. Chances are the door hinges need replacing.

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?

Door rubbing on front fender when opening and closing on my 2005 chevy trailblazer how do i adjust the door

At first check if the door hanger's are OK. This item is the first that quit his job on most SUV's and cars. Open your door to half, then try to lift the door up. If that happens, change the door hanger incl. 2 metal rings(one on top, one at the bottom) this part cost only some bucks. If you need to adjust the door, there are 2 screws on the body, this let the door slips front/rear, and -if your car is equipped with - there are 2 screws at the door, that let the door swing up and down. If it rubbs on the fender, take the doors backwards for only 2mm.

1998 olds cutlass makes a rubbing noise when steering wheel is turned to the left or to the right.

Sounds like the plastic inner fender is loose, or hanging and the wheel is touching it while driving. While the car is parked, try turning the wheel all the way to the left, then look under the left fender, behind the wheel to see if there is anything hanging or in the way. If not then turn the wheel all the way to the right, and check under the right fender and wheel.

I have a 93 escort wagon , that i love... it was hit in an accident... i bought a liitle parts car an need to replace parts.... does anyone have auto body part on the manuel?

I have done this for years and am familiar with these cars. The first thing to do is cut in your parts, by that I mean paint the inside edges of your door, fender and hood before you install them. The hood is a no brainer. four bolts probably ten millimeter. The fender is not very hard either, remove headlight and side marker and front bumper. The door needs to be disconnected under the dash and the wires pulled out before removal. Install the door and adjust it till it fits and closes properly, then the fender by lining up the body line before tightning into place. Before putting in the bolts along the top install your hood and align it with the back of the cowl so that it is even gap all the way across then adjust fender gap and tighten down. This will work perfect if your inner structure has not been bent or knocked over. Be glad to help further if you need it
