Rear Dent Repair

Hi all,

I have a dent on the rear of my Punto (picture below) which is immediately below the rear window. I would be grateful if anyone could tell me whether this is easily remedied or whether it is worth getting someone to fix it (and at what cost roughly it would?). It is in an awkward place as it's just below the rear window.

Many thanks.

Re: Rear Dent Repair

with a little filler and spray you could get that looking presentable but that top bump wouldnt go! probs cheaper to get a new boot from scrappy than to pay for it to be repaired ! how'd you manage to get a dent like that there ?

Re: Rear Dent Repair

a dent man would probably charge around 50, but im not sure whether or nto he'd want to do it being so close to the rear window, theres a risk of smashing the glass

Re: Rear Dent Repair

Cheers for the advice. Long story but i hit a skip from behind over a year ago and YES the glass broke! Very embarassing at the time. Am now planning to sell the car and was trying to decide whether it is worth getting the dent repaired or whether I should just sell it as the cost of the repair could be high.
