Roof Hail Dent Access for PDR

June 19, 2012

One question I am often asked is how do we repair the hail dents on the roof of a vehicle.

With Paintless Dent Removal (PDR), the process we use to remove the dents is by accessing the inside of the panel so that we can gently push the dents out. We do not actually use suction or some “magic” method to “pop out” the dents from the outside.

In order to make a proper repair with (PDR), we need to access the hail damage dents on the roof of the vehicle from the underside. We are able to do that by lowering the cars headliner. The cars headliner is one solid piece that is held in by several screws, bolts, and clips. Once these are removed, we are able to lower the headliner down to rest on the seats. When done properly and by an experienced technician, the headliner can be moved out of the way without any damage.

Below is a hail damaged vehicle from some Minnesota storms. The roof of this Toyota has over 200 hail dents. This shows the access gained by removing the headliner so that we will be able to push out the hail dents.
