My drivers' door will not stay "open". I want to replace the tension plate that mounts to the inner, lower hinge area. I saw a video, and they say the fender doesn't need to come off. I'm not sure if that's really true since that plate is pretty well tucked in. I figure it would probably be easier to just remove the fender. Do I need to remove the front bumper cover to remove the fender? I'm thinking if I just unbolt the driver side of the cover , I can maybe just move the bumper cover out just enough to get the fender off? Any pointers or suggestions are welcome. Thanks.

Pull wheel and tire then the inner fender liner and jack the car way up. Don't remove the fender.
