Fender dent problem!
So I some how managed to bend the fender next to the door. I know these things get beat up, but it's causing problems trying to open the door all the way. What's the best way to pull this thin out without messing it up more!? And again I've got no clue how this happened haha.
it happened to me too when i was in freezing weather. somehow the frozen water expanded something (hinge, plastic side molding on door). my dad kept pulling and pulling the door open, not knowing it pushed the fender in. i used a small crowbar with a piece of wood underneath for leverage. and gently pushed.

Check to make sure the door hinge mounts on the body aren't coming off. Common issue with those sagging because of rust. Will cause the door to hit the fender and prevent it from opening all the way

Those door hinges can come off even without rust present. (Ask me how I know). It's a fairly common thing to happen to XJs. You may have to weld the hinges back to the body.
