Fastenerfront

The 2015 Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon all-new midsize pickups have bolt-on fenders for ease of adjustment and replacement. When removing the fenders, you’ll find there is one fastener located under the air inlet panel with very close tolerance to the windshield.

Use extreme caution when breaking this fastener loose to avoid chipping the windshield.

Tape edge of glass to reduce chance of breakage. We’ve found a T-25 torx driver with wrench assist (see photo) works best.

Additionally, the fender attachment location is an open bottom slot, so the fastener does not need to be fully removed for fender alignment or removal.

When replacing a windshield in Colorado or Canyon pick-ups be sure to remove old urethane completely (commonly referred to as the full-cut method) so that a replacement windshield can be positioned onto a fresh bead of urethane and wet-out to the correct height within the pinch weld flange opening.
