Can a small dent over the rear wheel be accessed through side intake?


Recommended Posts

:cursing: I picked up a small dent from someone opening there door that is 4 inches over the right rear wheel at 12 o'clock position. I've had dents taken out before by Dent Wizard. My question is can access to this area by Dent Wizard be accomplished if I remove the side inlet to the inter cooler that attaches to the air duct inside the rear fender? The tools they utilize to repair these types of dents are normally long and narrow. Thank you

Maybe...........

There is a laminated transition from the inside lip of the wheel arch as it progresses into the body. A good dent removal technician will also have the option of drilling a small hole inside the top of the wheel arch transition - using it as a window to access the dent. It would then be filled by a heavy duty plasticized compound that would stop moisture entering - so rust won't be an issue.

This was the way a dent was fixed on our C2 - it came out perfect.

The trick is getting a person who really knows what they are doing. Get some references before you commit to getting them to do the job.

Short answer: No. But, no drilling is necessary.

Here's what I did for the same situation: Jack up the car. Remove the wheel. Remove the forward and the rear plastic mud sills. I believe a T-20 torx bit will be necessary, as will a 10mm socket. Remove the metal inner panel as well.

After you remove the panels, you will be able to push up with you hands to massage the dent. If necessary, you can use a pliable plastic spatula or scraper to get over the top of the air intake. don't use hard tools as you will likely cause a reverse dent. The metal is not too stiff.

Reverse process and admire your bodywork skills!!
