Hi

Expect you have had it fixed by now,? as I see your post is July O8.

If the vehicle was parked outdoors, I expect the damage was due to a hail storm, with large ice balls forming.
When they hit your car, denting of the body panels, and broken screens can be caused.

We have this problem here in Spain, and it is quite common.

This should be covered in you insurance policy, providing you are fully comp.

Good Luck.

Don´t forget to give me a rating please.

John.

How do I check transmission flued in a 2006 Bentley flying spur


With a Bentley you would take it to the Bentley dealership :>)

Lift the hood and look for the dipstick. There is one for the engine and one for transmission which normally has a clip to hold it down.

For the reason I stated first, there are no videos except for Continental.

How to Remove Dents Yourself Without Ruining the Paint



Only three things in life are certain: *****, taxes, and getting a dent in your car or truck. Even if you're as careful as possible, you can't always account for runaway shopping carts, wrongly thrown footballs, out-of-nowhere light posts, and other real-life annoyances.
However you got your dent or ding, the next thing on your mind is, undoubtedly, how to get it out. Sure, you can take it to a body shop or friendly neighborhood mechanic for repair, but their price quotes can be unbelievable, especially if they want to remove the paint first or use body filler. $200 for that tiny dent?! I don't think so.
Instead, save yourself some of that hard-earned money and do it yourself. There are plenty of ways to get a small dent or ding out of a vehicle at home without ruining your paint, and you don't need to be a gearhead to do it.
However, not all of these tricks will work on your particular automobile; your mileage may vary depending on where the dent is exactly, and what your body panel, hood, or bumper is made out of (aluminum, carbon fiber, plastic, fiberglass, steel, etc.). For instance, aluminum has little memory properties, so paintless dent removal is much more difficult.

Method 1: Use a Plunger

Not only can you unclog a drain with a plunger, you can get out small- to medium-sized dents out of your car too. Just splash some water on both the plunger and the dent and start pushing and pulling until it pops out. Make sure to use a cup plunger (for sinks), not a flange one (for toilets).
How to Get a Dent Out of a Car Using Just a Plunger

Method 2: Use Boiling Water

Reversing into an object is one of the easiest ways to get a dent. So for plastic bumpers, even if you attempt to take off the bumper, it might still be difficult to push out the dent because of how stiff the plastic is. Solve this issue by boiling some water in a pot and throwing it on the dent.
How to Remove Dents from a Car Bumper with Boiled Water
As soon as the water has been poured, reach behind the bumper and try to pop the dent back in. Thanks to heat of the water, the plastic should be a bit more flexible, making it easier to put back into place.
Since the heat won't last very long, you'll have to work quickly. If the dent doesn't completely go out, keep dumping boiling water on it until you're finished.

Method 3: Use a Hair Dryer & Compressed Air

Another popular method for removing car dents out of plastic material involves using two popular household products: a hair dryer and compressed air.
Start off by heating the car dent with the hair dryer at its highest temperature, which will expand the plastic of the car. As soon as it's hot enough, grab the can of compressed air, turn it upside down, and begin spraying that same area. Since the cold air will cause the plastic to contract, the dent will pop out.
(1) A heat gun, hair dyer, or lighter will work. (2) Then just use canned air.

Method 4: Use Dry Ice

Primarily used as a cooling agent, dry ice can be used to get out small dents from your car. As long as you're wearing protective gloves, hold down a piece of dry ice on the dent and rub it around until you hear your dent pop back into place.

Bentley GTC 2007 hood is closed but light on inside of car indacating that it's open , how can I get the light to go off


There should be a switch the hood comes in contact with, much like a door switch for the interior lights. That switch may be broken or stuck.

Bentley gt bonnet release


Pop opens the hood
Pull or push the hood release until you heard the hood pop opening whether the hood release is inside your vehicle. However, you need to look anywhere for 2013 Bentley Continental GT W12 and through the grill, carefully feel under the grill and finally behind the bumper to find a lever, arm, button or handle if the hood release is apparently at the front. And then press, pull or push it from the front to back, side to side until finally it can release the hood.
Even though the hood will just open a tiny, it will possibly be stopped by a safety catch which is a metal lever. You should release the hood when you pressed one way or other in order to open all the way. When you are driving, this gizmo accidentally avoids opening the hood.
Raise the hood fast with one hand
Feel along the station between the grill and the hood for the safety catch with the other hand. The rest of the way is to release and raise the hood.
If it is necessary, secure the hood
It is fine if the hood can stay up easily all by itself for 2013 Bentley Continental GT W12. Only if it does not like that, you should have to find a hoop prop which is a thin and long metal rod attached to the bottom edge of the opening hood or to the underside of the hood. In other words, either lift or lower the rod and fit the finishing of it into the slot which is provided to hold it.

My 87 nova has small dent in drivers door, broken side view mirrow and mirrow frame hardware broke off where it attachs to car door, insurance adjuster says car is total loss, car has lots of miles but...


Providing that the only damage is as you listed, the reason it has been classified as a total loss is because of its age. Can't give you a $ amount but if the accident was not your fault, generally insurance companies are fairly generous with what they offer. If the post where the door latch pin is located is not twisted, I'd keep the car and get another complete door at a local scrapyard (older cars may be difficult to find but if you try hard I'm sure you will find one.) It isn't that difficult to hang another door on there and a replacement shouldn't cost much more than $100..
Good luck!!
