    Fender gap from improper jacking

    So I took my car to a friend of mine to get new tires put on. He didnt charge me anything to do it but when I got the car back I noticed that my fenders were pushed out got under the car and the tab the says do not jack was bent out. I tried moving it back and the piece cracked so now my fender is permanently out. Can this be fixed anyway without having to get a new fender?

    The fender is completely busted off the tab so there is no bending anything back my thought was to maybe screw the lower part of the fender under the car to the floorboards but idk.

    I saw in another post you can get the side splitters from 6litereater and screwing them up to the car will hold the fender in place so that gave me the idea of just doing it without the splitter but I don't know if that will work or not.

    There's always epoxi, or you can make a metal "L" channel and rivet it to the flat area and then bolt it back to the original mounting tab.. Other than that I can't think of any other way other than replacing the fender @ this time. Good luck..

    I have a similar issue with that....i drove over a speed bump that had an little extra height on it and when my front tire cleared the bump it slammed down on the underside of my car and popped the panel out. Local car shop.....$1000 to replace the entire fender w paint. im holding off cause thats alot for just a fender.

    Go to Home Depot and buy a pc of ALum Angle about 6"lg and some epoxy glue (2 part). Straighten the metal flange out as good as you can get it. put the glue on the metal flange and the bottom of the fender and use a "C" clamp or some vice grips to hold it in place while the glue dries

    Good Luck

    Ive had that same issue and just screwed it on, really not worth taking it to a body shop. There are a couple of ways of fixing it and its stated above.
