are fenders different between 2013 to 2015 year Leaf

Wed Feb 28, 2018 7:35 am

I'm shopping for a white fender and I see 2013 fender does not fit my 2015 leaf. Can anybody confirm it? Given that body is the same between all these years I don't see why this would be the case.

Thanks!

I believe 11-13 Leafs had a side marker light, which also suggests a different fender.

'11 & '12 Leafs made in Japan have the side marker light.

in addition to the side marker there is a pearl white that came in 2014 that was not out in 2013. make sure the paint codes match.

If you buy a new replacement body panel, it's not going to come in a specific color. It will be painted primer gray, and you will need to paint it or have it painted. Used of course is a different story.

Also a question for the OP: did you buy a used one from a wrecked 2013 and found it did not fit? If so, was it the mounting tabs?

US '13 Leafs definitely DO NOT have the side marker lights there were present on US '11 and '12 Leafs.

Please don't PM me with Leaf questions. Just post in the topic that seems most appropriate.

FYI, I own a pearl white 2013 (no side marker light, made in US).
