The panels come easily off the car and are therefore easy to work with in the event of a dent. Minor dents can be readily removed by those skilled in working with stainless steel, but catastrophic crashes require panel replacement. Those skilled in working with stainless steel tell me that dents can often be removed with nothing but the proper application of heat.

How do i remove dent from a car without ruining the painted surface and many more?


Depends on how deep the dent is, is it a sharp crease, has the paint cracked in or near the dent? There are kits available that can pop out a simple dent, but not a more severe dent. You can Google paintless dent removal to see the kits and where to get one.

Fix dent in rear hatch


Taking out dents requires special tools and expertise. It is very easy to take a dent and make it worse trying to "fix" it. There are companies like Dent Wizard (in the Yellow Pages) that do that type of work. If you insist on doing it yourself you need a trim removal tool to gain access to the sheet metal, then remove whatever might be in your way (brackets/wiper motor/window motor). As to how to work the dent itself out, that lies beyond the scope of my expertise.

I have a 2000 Plymouth Breeze. I recently had it smogged, and it failed due to an evap system leak. What does this mean; can I fix it myself; and if not, will it put a big dent in my wallet?


Hi and welcome to FixYa!

If you have a leak then it must be traced to know where it's coming from. By then you can do the fixing. Yes you can do it by yourself, just find the cause.

Hope this helps and thank you for using Fixya!

Toyota Sienna bumper dent


These vans have a styrofoam bumper wrapped in semi-rigid plastic. When you dented the bumper you probably dented the styrofoam as well, so depending on how deep the dent is you may not be able to bring it back to normal.

The surest way to fix the dent would be to remove the bumper by unbolting it, then taking out the styrofoam and pushing out the dent.

Ac controls quit working blower fan is running on high all thetime. compressor is not working.


fan elays are under hood in black box by battery. 3 of them. 2 for high speed, 1 for low speed. Default is high speed when there is a probem.

Suspect maybe they shorted something out when fixing dent. Did they do any welding on the van? Connecting the cables to the body can sometimes send voltage where it's not wanted.
