remove drivers side front fender on 2007 silverado forum

Asked by Mar 01, 2010 at 04:05 PM about the 2007 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LT2 Crew Cab 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Hi,
I was backing up with my front open looking teh rear wheels when my door hit the grass hill. Not much of a big deal going maybe 2 mph pull up and shut the door.  Now the door got pushed up and won't open without hitting the fender.  Any guesses where to start?  Remove the fender? Remove the door? Remember i can't open the door except about 2-3" and it pinches the fender. I can't bel;ieve the hinges bent as they are rather beefy compared to what I hit and the speed, it was just some grass and mud. Thanks.

dont feel bad i did almost the same except that i was sliding backwards down a wet hill with the door open to look back due to it being dark & couldnt see anything out back window & the door caught a small tree. it actually ripped rhe hinges half off. I had to remove the door from the hinges & literrally beat them back into place & reweld the hinges in place. but before i welded them i hung the door to make sure it was aligned properly. but ya i had to hold the door shut & drive appr. 20 miles to get home. the door was hanging up on fender when opened. but did not have to take fender off at that time. there was minor damage to fender. until i hit a deer 1 yr later.
