There are bolts behind the door, to the cowl under the hood, going up into the cowl under the fender where it meets the door, to the gravel shield, to the radiator support. Approx. a dozen. Most feel it's easier to remove the inner fender along with the fender, less bolts to remove. Get the bolts out, pop the fender out where it meets the door, start pulling, wiggling, slapping, shaking, kicking until it comes loose... Seriously, when you start pulling the fender away from the body, you should be able to trace any bolts left tightened by the movement or lack of movement of the fender. There may be some frozen/rusty bolts, give them a blast with some good rust breaker before you tackle the job. Good luck, ask away if you have more questions. I'm assuming the front bumper is off already, if not, remove it, it will make the job MUCH easier. Dan
