no, haven't gotten the paint code number yet...where would I find that? Can I just look it up by year/color? i.e. '97 Black = #abcd?

Didn't even think of a used one. Thanks for the idea...

On your spare tire cover there should be a white sticker with a whole lot of alpha numeric codes. If you look in Techinfo you'll see a fairly complete list of codes and can match up the right one... For instance, on my car, I have 48U which is - Primary color exterior,dark yellow green metallic

JJ is your car black? If so there'* only one black. No need for paint code.

I know there was a fender in black local to me... I think about $70 was what they wanted.

The place is about 15 minutes away from me. Levielles (can't remember the spelling) They had a 96 black SSE in stock. Unfortunately their parts are a little higher than I usually like to pay.

Fenders are just time consuming to remove. there really isn't a whole lot to it. What makes it hard is remobing the screws for the inner fender, the bolts to the front bumper sometimes stick, as well as the mower ones. I have removed around 12-15 92-95 fenders and installed 2 of them. You'll need a 10mm socket and possibly deepwell socket, a 7mm socket, and a phillips screwdriver.

Jack the car up, remove the front wheel.

Remove 7mm and phillips from around the wheelwell edge, and 7mm from inside holding the innder fender on.

remove inner fender

There are 3 10mm holding the fender to bumper you access from under the car, 3-4 holding the top of the fender on, one inside on the edge of the firewall holding it on, two directly above that holding the fender to the underside of the support, and finally two on the lower edge of the fender by the driver'* door (might require molding removal on the 96+) also, might be a couple behind the turn signal. On 92-95 there is.

That should get your fender off.

I'd suggest visiting Boosty. He'* very knowledgable, will go with you to get parts, and also help install. $70 isn't too bad for a fender especially if it is the right color. Might be able to get headlights and such as well

Hello everyone...just have a slightly off topic question. In the future I am going to have to replace my drivers front fender and drivers door moulding because they seem to have collided many times-leaving the fender cracked and the moulding cracked. I was just wondering if any of you had an idea how much the moulding on the drivers door would cost used(thanks to this topic I see that a fender might be around 70 or so)? I went to my local GM dealer and was told they run around $300 new depending on color code. I have a 92 SSEi that is Light Silver with silver interior. This car is not on my good side half the time so I really don't feel like shelling out that kind of money for a new moulding. Thanks.....

Depends where you go. The yard by my parents often has $15 body panel sales, but you might not get the color you are looking for. Silver is a fairly uncommon color (although there was one in that yard a month ago) Other places, like the yards here are about $70. Worth it if you find the right color. Door molding depends. Usually like $20-40 depending on the yard. I'd sell you the one off my red car if The same thing didn't happen to it. i would factor about $100 if you are willing to wait to find the right color items, or possibly $100-200 if you need to paint them (based on how much paint would be.)
