I did all this and the fender still won"t come off.
Expert:  brownjeff replied 4 years ago.

If you did all the steps then I don't know as it should come off?

 

Let me see if another expert has any ideas.......I will send your information to them

Customer: replied 4 years ago.
The wheel well wants to come off with it as well.
Expert:  sprinkles08 replied 4 years ago.

Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

 

The plastic wheel well liner needs to be removed before the fender can be removed. The liner is attached with plastic rivets (about 10 or so). You'll need to knock the centers out of these rivets and remove the outer part and remove the wheel well liners from the truck. Then you'll be able to remove the fender if everything else is unbolted.

Customer: replied 4 years ago.

There were six rivets just inside the fender connected to the wheel well and I removed them.

 

Expert:  sprinkles08 replied 4 years ago.
You said the wheel well liner was trying to come out with the fender? That means it's still attached. You need to remove the inner fender liner from the wheel well, knock all the rivets out and remove it completely from the truck. There are more rivets in back farther than just the outside of the opening, these rivets attach to the fender too.
