How can I replace passenger side fender?


Too many unknowns here. How bad is the fender damaged? Is there any damage to other parts of the body that the fender attaches to? If so, then let a body shop do it because they have the equipment necessary to straighten those body parts. If you still want to give it a go, then take out all the bolts and other fasteners that attach other things to the fender like hose clamps,plastic reservoirs etc. The inner fender well has bolts that have to be removed from the fender. The fender itself has bolts accessible from under the hood. Get them all out and any stiffener rods at the front of the fender. There are a couple of bolts on the bottom of the fender where it meets the body nearest the front door. You have to get those from underneath. Keep track of where all the bolts and fasteners go so reassembly will go smoothly.

Passenger door is offset, thus pushing the front fender in when the door is opened. What do I need to replace? The door hinge? I'm trying to troubleshoot and help my son fix all the issues with his car.


The problem is ur DOOR HiNGE BUSHiNG! Test ur DOOR if it moves by lifting up, if it moves look at how the hinge plays, the BOLTS might only be loose and needs tightening! Replacing the HiNGE BUSHiNG, pull out the PiN, that holds the hinge from the door to the body panel. Look at the center hole, notice a copper/brass bushing, take it off and replace w/ new one! U need 4 pcs. for each door! Hope that might help u out! Taah!

My Toyota Avalon passenger door makes a clicking noise when opening or closing. What could cause this?


if the click happens when the door is almost completely open then there is an over center cam that latches the door open so it doesnt just swing back at you .. the cam is visible near or on the door hinges ... if there is any loosness in the pivot pin then it will snap each time you go over the latch point .. heavy greese on its pivot pin might quiet it down .. if the click happens just as the door is opened then make sure the door front edge is not hitting the fender edge. of course lube the hinges and make sure they are not loose ...

How to adjust passenger door on 95 nissan pathfinder?


Adjust it for what? I am gonna say that it is probably not striking the stiker latch dead center and is below it and when you close it it hits and you either have to hold up on the door or it hits low and then closes hard. Solution: the striker pin at he opposite side than the hinges is the rod that sticks out where the latch hits. It can be unloosened by a wrench or star wrench or allen wrench head depending on vehicle. Lossen it move it which way up or down till it latches good. this is a cure for bigger problem usually the hinges are worn and the door is dropping down (especially on long heavy car doors, usually 2 door versions) Check the hinges by lifting the door up at the entrance end if it lifts and drops sloppily on the hinge or moves on it without the entire care moving up and down it is worn. If you are actually adjusting the hinges. Try putting a long wobble head extention on a rachet or whatever allows access to the hinge bolts and put them in place and then close slowly and adjust till all body lines line up and door closes good without interference.( this can be a little tedious) use 2 people or 3 it really helps. If all this fails take it to a body shop and for a small fee they will do it in a few minutes.

I need to remove and replace my drivers side door and do not know how to do so.


go look at the passengers side. take note of the door seam and fender seam width. its about the width of a piece of cardboad. additionally look at the door hinges on the passenger side. it may or may not have washer shims. if they do/dont then just match up with passenger side. it takes 2 people to hang the door. screw in door hinges "finger tight" just to take off the weight of someone holding the door. play with the hinges until you can open/close door without binding or crimping fender at the seam. do not over tighten hinge bolts until the door opens/closes unobstructed. bottomline 2 people needed. slow and tedious job. you may have to add or take shims(washers) out for good fit. note that you may have to add shims to the inner door hinges or to the fender hinges where they meet. hope this is clear instructions.

I want to replace front passenger door


You'll need to support/make stable the door first. remove four (4) 12mm hinge bolts which attach the hinges to the door. Move the door about 4 inches away from the veh to access the door wire harness connector. Disconnect the door wire harness at the connector (connector at the veh body) by sliding the boot off connector & exposing the connector underneath. The connector has a 'release' tab center of the connector. press it and wiggle the connector loose. Install the new door in reverse order.

There is no need to remove the bumper or the fender. Just remove the door to reach the screws for the hinges mounted to the body- fender side.
