By fender I take it you mean

By fender I take it you mean the outer portion of the front fender. It's pretty straight forward.
Open the hood and remove the bolts which attach the top of the fender to the unibody (this is the part of the fender that the hood covers when its' closed).
Remove the inner fender (plastic splash guards in the wheel well). You might have to remove the wheel to gain (comfortable) access.
Open the door (frt door I assume) remove the bolts which attach the fender to the body just under the front edge of the door.
The headlight assembly may have to be removed to gain access to the bolts at the front of the fender.
Disconnect/remove any accessories which are attached to the fender.
Remove fender.
