Paintless Dent Repair on a Toyota Highlander in Roseville, CA
We had the opportunity to do paintless dent repair on the quarter panel of a Toyota Highlander in Roseville, CA.
This one was unique because of the location. It was located on the driver side quarter panel through the body line on the gas tank side.
For a dent like this, there are many different options for access. Access to the backside of the dent is the first thing we try to achieve as a paintless dent repair technician. This particular dent had 5 different ways to repair it.

Option #1 for Repair
We could have gained access from under the wheel well. That would require jacking up the vehicle, removing the fender well liner, and potentially manufacture an access hole if necessary.
Option #2 for Repair
We could have removed the taillight to gain access for the dent repair, but most likely the gas filler assembly would have been in the way.
Options #3 for Repair
We could have removed the interior paneling to gain access to the backside of the quarter panel. This can end up being an easy or much more involved project. The customer opted to not go this way either
Option #4 for Repair
We could have performed a glue pull repair. This can end up costing a lot more because of the difficulty level of glue pulling dent repair on a body line
Option #5 for Repair
We could and we did end up manufacturing an access hole in the door jamb of the quarter panel. This was the least involved and least expensive option for repair.
We always give the customer all of the options with pros and cons and let them decide. We never want to manufacture our own access, but if that turns out to be the best options then it is certainly an option we can do!
