Default 99 SL2 Body Parts Help

Hello All,

Well, after leaving my car parked in the street, I discovered some hit my car and left without telling me. Everything mechanically is fine, but it looks like I am gonna need a replacement for the driver's side fender. I've been looking around the net for replacement parts, but I was wondering if any of you could help me locate replacement parts. (Trusted places/ recommendations) Is it easy to remove the old and install the new fender? Thanks

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

It's not the easiest thing to do, but it's definately not the hardest. I've done it on a first gen SL2 and a second gen SC2... I'm guessing that your car will be more like my SC2, where you'll have to remove the plastic pushpins from the rocker panel and slide it towards the back tire so it'll pop off, at which point you'll be able to get to the two bolts at the bottom. I'm not completely sure of that though.

ok so I was a little right... here's the official GM method of doing it:


1. Remove the front wheelhouse panel outer fasteners.
2. Remove the front and middle fasteners on the rocker panel cover to lower the front end of the rocker panel cover.
3. Remove the bottom rear fender bolts.
4. Remove the windshield frame fill panel applique by removing the bolt, then sliding it upward.
6. Remove the bolt from the rear upper corner of the fender to the front body hinge pillar.
7. Remove the bolts from the fender flange to the upper motor compartment rail.
8. Remove the 2 fender-to-fender reinforcement bracket bolts.
9. Remove the fender.

Installation Procedure
1. If the fender is replaced: Install the Saturn emblem. Install the rubber seals to the fender rear flange.
2. Position the fender on the motor compartment side rail.
3. Align the fender to the door and hood.
4. Install the fender to the front body hinge pillar bolt. Notice: Refer to Fastener Notice in Cautions and Notices.
5. Install the anti-flutter bumper. Tighten Tighten the fender-to-front body hinge pillar bolt to 10 Nm (89 lb in).
6. Install the bolts from the fender flange to the upper motor compartment side rail, bottom rear fender to support, and fender-to-fender reinforcement bracket. Tighten
Tighten the fender-to-upper motor compartment side rail to 10 Nm (89 lb in).
7. Position the front fascia and slide it into place.
8. Install the windshield frame filler panel applique.
9. Install the front of the rocker panel cover with plastic fasteners.
10. Install the front wheelhouse panel outer fasteners.

END
