Default Dent removal





Hi there.

Got a dent over the drivers side rear wheel arch, see pics.

Anyone experienced this issue themselves. I'm looking for a dent removal place please. I've been told that there is access to the wing through the rear light cluster, anyone confirm this. All and any information greatly appreciated.

John

Ask a Paintless Dent Repair guy, not us.

I suspect it could be improved, but not eliminated without filling & painting.

I did ask and he said there was no access through the wheel arch which is right. But I was told that there is access through the rear light area or drilling through the door pillar. Was looking for someone who has had this done previously. To confirm its possible etc. Thanks.

Not sure any of that is accessible but there are a couple of holes covered by the rear tray side-trim that *might* give you the access needed but space looks pretty tight between the inner and outers. These photos are pretty handy to get an idea https://www.s2ki.com/forums/uk-irela...autos-1180304/
(there are some bigger holes hidden by the arches in the pics, I was able to get my hand in there and squirt some rust preventer in)

If it was any further round the arch ie more forwards then I would say no, however if you remove the boot side trim a good dent man would have a fighting chance of getting rid.

by the way, change them rear discs

Having used Diamond dents in the past I would say that is going to be a pain. You could look for a body shop that does stuff like arch rolling, they might be more experienced at dealing with this kind of damage. I would have thought where the two skins come together would make it nigh on impossible to get in there.

Nothing to do with your question but you appear to have the wrong size rear tyre on the car?
