    Default Aaarrgghh - Parking Dent!

    Hi Guys - Always been more of a lurker than a poster but hope I can draw on your collective experiences for a bit of advice?

    Just started to get the car up to scratch (kick plates, Signum fog surrounds, set of Snowflakes, plenty of polish etc..) and what do I stumble across this morning when leathering it off - a dreaded parking dent. Now I've had a few rectified before over the years, but they've always been in easy to get at areas - door panels etc.. This one happens to be in the drivers side rear quarter panel, quite near to the front, getting close to where the rear door closes.

    I've had a bit of a poke around the boot, but aren't sure if it can be reached - has anyone had one sorted in a similar location?

    Please help, the wife can't take much more of me stomping around the house like a bear with a sore head stressing about it and just knowing it is do-able will help big time!!

    Cheers all.

    Dent Devils might be able to get it out. You would be supprised at how they can get a dent out from where you think it is impossible.

    Have you tried the suction pad dent pullers? Sort of like a sink plunger with handles. If it's not creased the metal it should do it.

    Cheers for the replies guys, starting to feel a little more confident now!

    Tried to get a pic, but it's really difficult as the dent comes and goes depending on where you're standing - it's definitely there though! To add insult to injury, found another on the opposite rear quarter where our friendly local council workers flirted a stone at the motor when cutting grass at the side of the road on a sit on mower - wrong place at the wrong time as usual!!
