How to remove a fender from a 2005 PT Cruiser

A branch recently fell on my PT cruiser and severely crumpled the left-side fender, taking out the headlight at the same time. I recently sourced a replacement fender/headlight combo at one of those facilities where you have to pull the parts yourself. As I have never done anything like that I'm not sure how to proceed or exactly what tools I should take with me other than wrenches and a socket set. Any tips from someone who's worked on a PT Cruiser?

I've never worked on a PT cruiser but most of the bolts will be along the top [under the hood] but there will also be one or more at the bottom between the wheel well and the door and at the front on/near the bumper. If you check yours out you should be able to determine what tools you need to bring to the junkyard.
