    A Big Dent

    I'm not going into the story because it winds me up, but last night someone clever chav decided that he didn't like the look of my car and decided to punch a big dent into the rear quater panel just behind the side windows. The dent is about 4 inches across and 6 inches long. Any ideas on how to remove it?

    I'll try and get a picture of it if required.

    Cheers

    this happened to me 6 months ago. I got told its actually the worst place you can have a dent.

    It cost me £800. This was mine, is yours similar?

    Its on the smooth part behind the windows. I would perfer to fix it myself, but if not think I'll claim on insurance.

    that sounds quite nasty as im not sure how they would get inside the panel to knock it out.

    You are best off going to a dent/crash repair place and they will look round your car in 5 minutes and tell you what price youre looking at. Goto a few to get some different opinions. you will soon get apicture of how much it will cost you

    If the panel isnt creasd you shouldn't be in too much trouble. but if it is it will be costly. A said try and get chips away, i know they're usually good!
