Remove corner light.
two 10mm bolts behind corner light.
Remove tire.
Remove fender liner.
three 10mm bolts on top
two 10mm bolts at the bottom.
one bolt going up and down, one going front to back between the wheel and the door, inside the fender.

That'* correct for plastic fenders.

Thanx Damenorder.. hopefully I will remember that in 2 weeks time

But the bolt you say that goes up and down and side to side.. are they well hidden and or they need a long extension bar?

3" extension may be needed if you have fat hands, 12" will fit.

Thank God I had my Dad'* help; he works on heavy machinery, but he'* a great all-around technical person Still, it was quite the project figuring it all out though.

I had no books when I did this the first time, Took me a full hour and pissed me off looking for bolts Ask anything you're not sure of, with 200ish active members someone is bound to know.
