I would take it to an autobody shop, most of them can repair bent frames depending on the damage. They will tell you whether or not they can do it.
I had a 94 Tempo that I repaired the frame 2 times ( from sliding into curbs in the winter ) that car is still on the road with no alignment issues.
Thats how we do it in Canada !! : )
Good Luck!

Heater in the 2001 lincoln ls where is the relay for the heater


The heater is just a radiator using the coolant to heat the car if. If you're having blower motor issues, it should be under the passenger foot well. It usually looks like a black bowl. Often it's a short, use your palm and hit it or around it, hit it just enough to get it working again. Over time it might quit, I've had them continue to work long after. Relays are often under the hood on the passenger side, and can be tested, they click if they're working. You can sometimes find great blower motor replacements in junk yards.

Car was hit on front passenger side. A frame bent


If the engine cradle is bent or the sub frame, I'd get rid of it. If the control arm is bent, that is replaceable. With a broken axle, I'd be suspicious of the transmission as things tend to move much further then "snap back" during impact. Doing the work yourself will save a lot of $ and if you use scrap yard parts, even more (will also cut your losses if it doesn't work out well). Don't bother doing anything with the fender etc 'till you are sure it goes straight after replacing the items you mentioned. (after installing, have it aligned)
You are the best judge of whether you will keep it. You drove it every day and know what you had better than anyone else does. Time is also a factor...how long can you lay it up???
Good luck!

Hit curb while turning, tire rubs firewall


If you did not damage the frame, you more than likely damaged the lower control arm (a triangle shaped aluminum part which mounts to steering knuckle(tire side) and two bushing mounts (To frame) Check the condition against the undamaged side. If the control arm is damaged see if you can get one from a junk yard. If you do replace any part yourself Get an alignment immediately after repair.

Passenger side mirror is loose on Olds Bravada 1997


there should be no reason for side mirrors to be loose unless one hit something to make it come loose, rear-ly does that bolt will ever come lose itself. pop the cover off on passenger side with screw driver, do it gentle-ly it held on by plastic tab, then you will see the bolts holding on to the mirror, tight the bolt if its not broken. if need replacing, get one from the junk yard.

Replacing front fender


My son went around a curve one night and hit a tree stump that was in the middle of the road. It put the front bumper under the truck, busted the radiator, the framing brace that supported the radiator and the A/C condenser. There was even wood in the frame from the impact. He also needed to replace a fender from a previous accident. After getting everything installed on the engine, they had a problem putting the fenders back on.

The passenger's side fender fit perfectly except where the hood was hitting in one spot. The fender was about 2 to 3 inches too high and the guys were threatening to take a hammer and beat it down. But after getting a stronger light and searching the frame of the truck from all angles, they found out there was still one bolt that needed to be removed. Once it was removed, the fender went on smoothly. They didn't get to use the hammer like they were threatening!
