This is the sort of thing you probably want a repair guide for, only because it will contain step-by-step illustrations. It's not rocket science but it's nice to see where every last nut and screw is. Autozones web site has a free "repair guide" section that may have this procedure, otherwise try Chilton or Hayes. For now I can give you a brief summary of how to do it; 1) remove bumper cover, 2) jack up car, remove wheel, 3) remove splash shield/air dam, 4) remove headlight assembly, 5) remove fender bolt in this area, 6) remove fender bracket and bolts, 7) remove wheelhouse opening fender bolt, 8) remove upper fender bolt, 9) remove fender. Before you start, pick up several packs of shims of various sizes, you'll need them when reinstalling - make good notes of just how many and where they go or you'll be fighting realignment. Also take several digital photos before you start so you know where everything goes back to.
