    My 94 explorer recently had a bad incedent and the front end got wrecked...
    I need to replace the radiator support, and the inner fender support bar... its the rectangular piece spotwelded onto the inner fender, Anyone ever have to do this, and do you need to remove the door to get it off? How about the radiator support, is that welded in too?, I have accsess to a full shop and just about every tool you can imagine, plus i can weld so getting them back in wont be trouble. Any tips on the issue would be greatly appreciated i need to get back on the road soon!

    No, the doors do not need to come off.
    I did a how to remove repalce core support in the Body Work and Detailing thread some time ago.
    Remove both fenders is it.

    The core sup. IS welded in but bolts to the frame.

    If a search proves unsuccessful, which it shouldn't.
    Lemmie know, I will try to help you along.

    I have to do the same thing I had an accident as well

    the radiator support and area near the fender..Im guessing it is the same as you are referring to need to be replaced. Where did you find the info?

    I am in the middle of a search now, but i figured I would ask also.

    thanks

    Hi Jim,

    While I appreciate that you used the search function this is a thread from 2004 on a first generation explorer. Your vehicle is a third generation "explorer" and you will likely get better information in the sub forum for that: Link 1

    Look for a thread like this perhaps: Link 2
