Can someone please tell me if I can remove just one fender from my 2013 Fortwo or do I need to remove the whole front clip to replace just one fender. Thank you!

This is a really good source for all smart car maintenance and repair. Worth while take out a subscription. Check out You Tube too. There are numerous hands on video’s. Demonstrating the procedure. It’s quite involved. But if you take your time. You can accomplish It.



Good Luck!

I appreciate the reply, I have watched the video. But the question is do I have to take the whole front clip off to change one fender? Or can you just take one side off, Thanks

The front fenders are attached to the center panel that holds the grill. The fixings are hidden until the front clip is removed, so to separate a fender from the front clip the whole assembly must be removed. It may look like a big job to remove the front panels, but it is not. It is a little tedious, but not difficult to do, even solo. The only problem I had was the antenna threads were seized. I had to destroy it to remove it, so I bought a nice, short one to replace it.

I put the tow back bar in my smart passion, (451) took the front fenders off one at a time, get a plastic removal tool at auto store it makes it much easier. You have to remove the clips at the front of fender that are shared with the grill.
