Auto body repair & detailing/1998 buick lesabre


HI I just bought one of these and I need to replace Right Rh Passenger Side Front Fender, and get it painted red. Could someone give me any ideas how to remove said fender and how much to get a new one painted red would cost?

Hi Sabrina!....I just checked out the Cross Canada website for you, and found out that the price of an aftermarket fender for your vehicle is between $357 and $510 Dollars. The price difference is dependent on fit and quality. The cost of refinishing a fender, on average, will be 3.5 Hours, including Clear Coat. At a $75 Dollar door rate, as it is here, the price will come to $262.50. In total, you are looking at $772.50 on the high end. In regards to replacing a late model vehicle fender, these are the basic steps: Remove the front bumper cover, right hand side headlight in your application, and fender plastic splash shield, and exactly in this order. Once this is done, you will have access to the bolts that secure the fender to remove it. After the fender is refinished, you will just need to re-install everything in the exact reverse order....Hope this helps you out...If you have any further questions or concerns, please drop me another line....Thanks....Dave.
