You won't know until you take it to a body shop and get an estimate for repairs.
There may be hidden damage behind the bumper cover too.
The vehicle is a total loss with repairs cost more than 75 percent of replacement value with most insurance companies.

SOURCE: 94 chevy s10 blazer power windows not working

I had the same problem - driver side fine, passenger side front not working/slow or the back seat. You need to replace the window motor on the passenger side. Yes, there are two motors. It's pretty simple if you are handy with some tools. The hardest part is getting the 4 mounts that hold the window motor to the door off. The are factory riveted to the door, so I had to grind the outsides off and tap them out. Just watch the spring lever that holds the window bar for going up and down. I didn't pay attention and it snapped back - nearly broke my thumb.

Frames can be straightened, so a bent frame alone does not total the car. Will the insurance company pay?

I have a 2000 volkswagen beetle that was wrecked and it has a bent frame on the front passanger side what would it cost me to have the frame straighten and it fixed or is it even worth fixing?


if the frame is bent, then there is more stuff bent, it's better to have a body shop check it out, there is always more damage then you can see, , something that old, just might be a total

need to tell insurance company that you need to take it in and have it looked at, any accident will have unforeseen toll other parts of the car, just because it has a unibody frame does not mean that the rear end could not have been damaged in the accident

1996 Toyota Corolla was rear-ended, the floor of the trunk was damaged, as well as the back quarter panels and bumper. Can I repair and still have the car be safe in the event another **** rear-ends me?


most any car can be fixed to be safe but that's where money comes in to play. as long as the frame is not damaged it's probably worth your while. if the frame is bent you may want to pass on repair due to high price for repair vs. market value of car.

MY 1989 240 DL WAS CLEAN NO RUST ENGINE REBUILT NOT A DENT ON HER MOTOR WAS REBUILT AND THE ENG COMPART WAS SO CLEAN AND BLAM! SOME DRUNK LADY REAR ENDS IT TOTALS IT WHATS IT WORTH?


worth is a strange question....to whom??
you,the insurance company,or a scrap yard?.or maybe to someone who wants it for spares.
there has yet to be a court case for compensation for a car that has not got an insurance value with "agreed value" did you have agreed value for a classic car or did you not bother????cos you didnt know.....(everyone with a classic car has agreed value insurance,even me with a 1961 rover 90.

Is it worth my deductible


It maybe if you plan on keeping the truck,there is obvious mechanical damage to the front end weather it's minor to major I can't tell you,it may be a bent tie rod or bent wheel or the frame may be bent,either way driving the truck in this condition will damage the brakes(not the one already damaged)steering and prematurely wear your tires at the very least and could cause major damage to the rear axle,you need to get some estimates and compare them to the deductible,because it may cost just a couple of hundred to repair the mechanical problems or it could cost a couple thousand just to do the mechanical,add at least a thousand more for the body damage.Your truck books at about $3800 to $4500 with all options,but factor in the economy and It's possible the insurance may call it a total loss also,Hope this info helps.

Yes, if it didn't do it before the accident but now it is then call your insurance co. and let them know it isn't fixed and the symptoms. It could be anything. A bent steering component, warped rim, etc.

I would get a second opinion but yes you can tweek a component a small amout but still take it out of adjustment range. You normally wouldn't replace a frame but would have it straightened by a professional body shop. It may be prudent to involve the insurance company

Bent frame


Usually when the frame is bent, the insurance company will total out the car. I would suggest obtaining a second opinion. With the frame bent you set yourself up for a lot of problems later with vibration issues and alignment problems.
