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.

2009 Chevy Aveo Passenger Side Fender Dent!

easily push it out? Probably not. If you pry against the door, you risk damaging the metal on that. Take it to a body shop and pay them to move it out enough so you can use your door. That won't cost much

Replace door hinge 2000 gmc sierra

How exactly are the hinges ruined? To change the door on Sierras you drop out the pivots the hinge swings on. If the hinge bodies are the damaged part it's going to cost you money. You will need to get a GOOD body work specialist to cut out the old hinges and re-weld new ones in. Get the specialist to check the body and frame in case the wind has bent something else.

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!

Driver side door loose

WEll, usually not a bushing, but there is often lots of wear at the pivot pin. Usually best to replace entire hinge, as teh tolerance goes off when the pin wears...

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.

Replace door hinges :toyota levin

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.
