Hey, thanks for responding! Don't suppose you'd have a schematic or some sort of step by step on this? I tried googling for a couple of hours yesterday but didn't have much luck.

Thanks again for trying to help.
It's a 2005. Now the salvage yard just called and said they don't have a gold fender. I really don't have the means to paint it so I kinda have to find gold.
My wife's going to drive this car until it has high miles so I'm not really worried about a exact match but I'd like it to be the same color.

My repair manual is only for the third generation vans ('96-'00), but it indicates that you must remove the bumper, wheel, wheelwell insert, headlight assembly, and a small piece of trim under the sideview mirror in order to fully access the quarter panel bolts.
You might consider picking up a repair manual for your van to assist, especially if your wife plans to keep it into high mileage.
Best of luck to you in your search - gold is a fairly common color within your compatible model years, so the trick will be to find a parts van that has a good panel on it!

Thanks again. Was hoping I wouldn't have to remove that much stuff.
Thought about buying the manual. I guess that's a small investment if I plan on fixing and repairing myself. If I find a gold fender I'll for sure buy the manual since your's was for an earlier model.
