Bad fork seals, allowing loss of fork oil. Missing fork oil due to mischief or missing drain plug. Fork damping mechanism failure. Huge pothole. Too many wheelies. Broken fork spring(s). Severe bike overload and heavy braking. Front end collision. Air shocks low on air.

Any of those things COULD cause the front to bottom out. Probably the most likely is low oil in the forks. Not likely the damping mechanism could have failed but it's possible.

How do you get acces to right fender on expedition to pound damage out?

you can take out the inter wheel well fender or guard I forgot what they call it. remove the tire and you can get to the bolts a lot easier. when you take out the inter fender you may be able to get to the dent from the fender wheel well. if not and you need to remove the fender you will find bolts under the hood along the top of the finder edge. there is one under the cow as well right close to where the fender connects to the suv by front door. you will also find bolts that hold it to the front bumper I believe. you might have to look around to see if there is more. I just replaced my fender on my 2003 expedition about a month ago. you can get them on line for about $75. also I just remembered there are like 3 bolts that you can get to right by the front door running down to the trim piece on the bottom of fender. good luck

HELP! 2004 dodge ram 4x4 diesel. Cluster panel is lit up like a Christmas tree. ABS, brake light , service 4 wheel drive, no oil pressure, no amps, service engine and speed nor RPM work. Engine stays on...

was the truck ever in an accident especially a front or fender hit if so theres exposed wires that are hitting each other maybe from bumpy driving then it happens try to trace wire harness from either side and look for insulation breaks in the wires also there could be a leak that water is getting to the fuse box and causing the hots to jump each other then in either case when you shut down and restart everything is normal till it jumps again sometimes body shop guys drill holes to pull out dents and they end up drilling through the wires then at certain times the current can jump circuits this also applies to front hits where sharp areas gradually cut the wires and on a bump hit you get the problem

Every time I open the door it hits the fender And makes a popping sound !

the hinge could have been bent in an accident but you can try shims where it bolts to the frame to give you more leeway.

Damaged plastic liner of wheel well rubs on tire when driving over bumps

Even if you popped the dent out, the liner may not fit back on tightly. They are usually held by plastic clips or plastic pins or even plastic screws that easily get distorted, or the hole they are held with gets enlarged from tearing. You could keep the liner up with a couple of machine screws drilled into strategic places....or, you could just remove the liner-it's not a safety issue-it just helps keep mud and dirt from building up in the wheel wells and fender corners. To remove it, first take the wheel off. Then you can see how it is held on Pull it off and throw it away.
If you pop the dent out and fender looks pretty good, and the liner appears it can be re-used with just a little help, all the better.
It;s up to you.

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.

I need to know how to remove my front fenders so i can bang out the dents in them from hitting a few deer.

It's pretty simple, hopefully this video can explain it better than I could in text. Remember all the bolts, that's the thing that gets most people.

1994 Mercury Topaz Fender Removal

Harbor Freight and most local body shop supply stores should have a suction-cup type tool for pulling out dents. You maybe able to remove the inner fender well to get to the dent. To remove the fender, you'll need to remove the top fender bolts, the bolts that attach it to the header panel, and the bolts holding it on back by the door.
