Inner fender repair screw hole

My inner fender aroun

d my wheel wall is falling off , it is falling off because the screw holes the inner fender screw too are busted. I bought a new inner fender but i need ideas to be able to screw the new part on.

Can i use something like those brackets to go over the busted screw hole ?

You might try gluing a metal plate on the back of the hole with the correct size small hole drilled in them. Screw it right back on.

Thank you for fast response

What type of glue? Like gorilla glue?

Use an epoxy.


Or just use a screw, nut and a couple of fender washers

Or just drill new holes if the original holes are too big. It doesn’t matter if they are in the exact same place as before. Another option is those c clips with the retainer for the screw on them. At any auto parts store. Probably going to help to pull the wheel off to have room to work or here’s a better idea, just let a shop do it. They’ll have everything needed at hand.

Can you post a picture of these clips, I’m considering everyone suggestions . but Can i see what this c clip with retainer looks like?
Thank you

Hardware store, auto parts store, etc. Different sizes for different screws.
