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.

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

Wrecked 2004 suburban how do you measure the frame to see if it is bent , car was hit on passenger side bent frame horn to the right. set off the air bags.


Well you can measure from the lower front balljoint with a tape measure all the way back to the middle of the rear axle housing on the same side,then do that for the other side your measurements probabley won't be the exact same on both sides but should be within about a 1/4 of and inch.Then you can do the cross measure way by taking the tape measure and going from the left front lower balljoint to the right rear axle housing then do the same for the other side.This should also be within about 1/4 of an inch.

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!

I hit a curb with my front passenger wheel. Since


You probably bent the rim slightly or knocked off a wheel weight, just get your front wheel re-balanced.

Alignment causes a pull not a vibration, and it takes a hard hit to bend a frame.

I bet you this is not more then a 50 dollar fix.

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.

Same this happened to me on my 2004 Rendezvous. The fuse popped out. Just push it back in. The fuses are located on the left side panel of the front passenger seat. If they are not marked there is a map in the owner's manual.
