Can Paintless Dent Repair Take Out a Crease?

This is a question I am often asked. Many people want to know if a crease in their car can be removed with the paintless dent repair method. Well… Yes It Can.

With all the DIY, Do-It-Yourself, dent repair videos on Youtube and the places online showing how to get a dent out of your car, the exposure to how professional paintless dent repair is done is limited. Most of those DIY videos will show you that dent repair is done by just “popping” the dent out with suction cups or heat and dry ice or compressed air. So when it comes to having a creased dent in your car it may seem like those methods would not work.

How is Paintless Dent Repair Done?

Professional Paintless Dent Repar is done in multiple ways with PDR tools. We use special hardened steel rods that are used to gently move the metal back out from the inside of the panel. We will use special glue and tabs, that are made especially for PDR so they will not damage the paint, to pull the dents out. This “glue pull” method is not always used to just “pop” the dents out. It is used to pull out the dents to minimize the amount of pushing that we need to do from the inside of the panel. We also use special hammers and tools to “knock down” the crowns and work with the metal on the outside of the panel to properly flatten the area. These hammers are a critical tool in the paintless repair process because of the way the metal reacts when it is dented. It does not just go in but also moves out. This is the reason that the dents don’t just pop out with other methods.

In this video you will see the Professional Paintless Dent Repair method being used to remove this crease dent from the door of a Volvo. The glue pull method was used to minimize the pushing needed with regular PDR tools and also because of obstructions inside the door panel that made using those dent removal tools impossible.

Is it possible to remove large dents with Paintless Dent Removal (PDR)?

There are a few questions I am often asked about PDR.

  • Can paintless dent repair remove large dents?
  • Can you repair a crease with paintless dent removal?
  • Can dents in a body line be removed paintless?

These are some common questions and misconceptions about PDR. With the new advancements and techniques today, all of these are possible. There is no longer a need to send your car off to the body shop for days to have the costly method of having them repaired and painted.

In this video you will be able to see all three of these types of dents are indeed possible.

This dent in the fender of the Toyota Sienna minivan was a large dent with a crease right through the body line. My customer from Coon Rapids MN had a small collision that cause the damage to the fender.
Paintless Dent Removal was the best method to use for this repair.

Porsche Dent Repair in MN

January 28, 2015

This video shows a dent that I removed with paintless dent repair on a Porsche Panamera 4.

My customer from Blaine MN came in to have this dent removed since he had backed into the mail box. I was able to use PDR (Paintless Dent Repair) method to remove this dent without having a costly repaint or diminish the value of the car.

I was able to start with the “glue pull” method to pull up some of the dent and minimize how much pushing I would have to do from behind the dent. I then removed some of the interior to gain access to the back of the panel. Doing this allowed me to finish pushing the dent out with PDR tools. The rear hatch on this Porsche is aluminum. Removing a dent on an aluminum panel takes some extra skill and patience since it reacts different than removing a dent on a steel panel.

Here we have another excellent repair and a happy customer.

How can you save money using paintless dent removal? Our customer Ryan had received an estimate at an auto body shop for $620 to repair the small dents on both rear doors of his Ford F150 truck. He would have had to leave his truck at the auto body shop for a few days for the repair. The body shop would then have had to grind off the factory paint from his doors then fill the damage with bondo to smooth out the dents. They would then repaint the doors. All of that work is not necessary when you could use a paintless dent repair company. At Excel Dent Removal we were able to repairs the dents in just a few hours and at less than half of the body shop estimate.
