Default Drivers side fender replacement

Hey guys,

Can anyone tell me what'* involved in replacing my driver'* side fender? It'* on a 94 Bonneville SE. Is this a big job or average? I've done some pretty big stuff underneath the hood but no body work this far. Someone hit my car and left it and the fender, bumper, and turn signal assembly all need replacing. Thanks,

Kris

should only be 4-6 bolts holding it on. 2 in the door jam and 2-4 in front behind the bumpercover. when the new one goes on it is all about aligning it correctly

How difficult is the alignment? Does the bumper need to be removed then?

the alignment is not hard. the bumper cover attaches to the fender. the fender also possibly attaches to the radiator support

Great, sounds like something I can handle. What'* the best way to get a hold of one of these? I found one online for $150 with shipping. Do you have a better suggestion besides junk yard?
