View Full Version : How do I replace the fender?

Not really much of a car person here, at all. We're just a couple of kids looking to do a small repair.

My best friend has an '03 Grand Am sedan. The driver's side fender is smashed from where she turned the wheel too soon while backing out and hit a pole. (lol).

We just want to junkyard a new fender and put it on.

Any detailed instructions (for dummies) on how to do that?
I've been told it's a piece of cake.

It is pretty easy.... I don't have detailed instructions, but it basically just involves taking the wheel and fender liner out, then unbolting the fender, putting the new one in.

I replaced both fenders, hood, and front bumper on my old SE in about 6 hours back when I was 18, and had absolutely no clue what I was doing. Its pretty self explanatory.
