It’s no secret that getting into a fender bender is a hassle. From sorting out insurance to figuring out how much repairs will cost, there are many steps that you have to consider. However, Ace Auto Parts can help you make the process a little easier and affordable with our supply of high-quality, used car parts.

Between your car’s door and the bumper is the fender, although different cars may have a unique fender installation style. No matter its installation style, the fender is supposed to protect the driver in case of a collision. Because of its purpose, you may find yourself needing to replace the fender after an accident.

While purchasing a used fender can save you a lot of money in the long run, there are several factors you should keep in mind when searching. By keeping these tips in mind, you’ll be able to find a fender that’s ready to protect your vehicles in an event of another future collision.

●        In Near-Perfect Condition

While many junk vehicles arrive at the shop after a severe collision, there are some fenders that come in without any damage. After all, a compromised fender won’t be able to properly protect you from an injury during a collision. You should look for a fender that has no signs of damage including dents and cracks. While we can work out smaller dents, larger forms of damage are not as easily repaired.

●        The Fender Matches Your Car

In order for the fender to be properly installed onto your vehicle, you will have to ensure the fender matches your car’s exact make, model, and year. This will maximize the fender’s effectiveness and usability.

●        Similar Material to Your Car’s

Take the time to match the fender’s material with what the rest of your car is made of. Most often, fenders will be crafted from steel for optimal durability and protection.

●        Minimal Rust

Finding a used fender without rust may be difficult, however, small amounts of rust can be easily removed. You should avoid purchasing a fender with a lot of rust as these pieces can deteriorate quickly.

Purchasing a used fender can save you a lot of money in the long run, however, you should take the time to find a fender that is in good condition.
