How to remove 2009 WK Front Fender?

Long story short, I need to replace the front passenger side fender.
I already bought a new one and had it painted.

How do I remove the fender though? I know there are bolts on the top (in engine bay) and bolts at the very bottom.. and maybe some under the trim but are there any other special things I need to know/disconnect?

Thanks

Awesome, thank you! I'm sure that will be of some help.

I read somewhere that I may have to remove the entire front bumper?
And also that I need a rivet gun to re-install the fender liner?

Is this really true?

Yes, it is true. Not too hard.. The rivets are plastic and can be bought at Harbor freight for about 16 bucks, it has a hand rivet gun with them.

Gotcha - thanks for the pictures.. It seems intimidating ha!
There are no write ups for this project yet?

I hate to just go into it blind and start pulling stuff apart.

Do I really have to REMOVE the entire front bumper? Or can I just undo the corner on the side I'm working on?

pulling the front bumper really isn't so bad. Don't let the exploded view diagram scare you. I did it without looking up anything and it was fine. Granted I've pulled front bumpers on a couple other cars. This one was pretty simple compared to some.

Any chance you'd be willing to sum up the removal process? Where the bolts/clips are etc?
