Mercedes Dent Removal

This Mercedes C300 came into the my Minnesota Paintless Dent Repair Shop to have this crease removed from the door. My customer said she was out shopping and came out to her car and noticed this 4 inch crease in the door. It looks like it was made by a shopping cart because of the way the impact was made and the horizontal scratches that were in the crease.

A crease dent in the door like this is removed with the paintless dent repair method by accessing the back of the panel and slowly working out the dent with special PDR tools. There was an door safety beam inside the door that caused part of the metal to pushed out. This part is hammered back in to make the area smooth.

If you have had a shopping cart hit your car and make a dent, then choose paintless dent repair to restore your vehicle back to new condition without painting.

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.

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.

What happens when you are in Minneapolis and someone comes up and KICKS the side of your car. You end up with a LARGE DENT about a size 12 shoe that is left in the quarter panel. Just like the one in this Mercedes.

So what do you do? Watch this video to see what happens.

So my customer was downtown Minneapolis one evening when some guy comes up to his car and gives a good swift kick right to the left rear quarter panel. Now he has the large dent in his nice Mercedes. Needless to say he was not very happy with this.

It’s a good thing he brought the car into us at Excel Dent Removal to have paintless dent removal done to repair this dent. With the paintless dent repair (PDR) method I was able to remove this large dent without having to repaint the car. You will see in the video that the PDR method involves gaining access to the back of the panel to push the dents out from the inside. For this large dent in the Mercedes quarter panel it meant taking out the tail light and exposing the opening behind it.

Often with large dents there will be a “crown”. This is what happens when the vehicle gets dented. The metal doesn’t just go inward but has to move somewhere and can cause the metal extrude out. Much like the ripples in the water when a rock is thrown in. You will see in the PDR video that I had to use a special hammer to knock down the crowns to straighten the metal.

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.

I want to thank all my customers for their great reviews. I will continue to bring you the best paintless dent removal service and always strive for an excellent repair.
