Hello,

this is my forst post here so i would just like to say hello and thanks for any help you maybe able to give.

I have got a 2008 CLS and was driving home the other day and out of the corner of my eye i saw a couple of kids pop up from behind a bush and throw a couple of apples at my car, one hit the side of the 'C' pillar (think thats the term) this has made a fist size dent in the bodywork :mad: We have a mercedes outlet very close to me so i just popped in there for them to have a look at. They said this would be a very difficult job to get out because of the air bag situated behind the trim. He then went on to try and sell me another CLS just because of this small dent !!

I was wondering if anybody knew how difficult the job is to remove the trim and airbag to be able to gain access for the dent to be knocked out ? Would somebody like dentmaster be able to handle this ? Any help or advice appreciated.

thanks
neil

Hello Neil and welcome to the Forum.

I have an S Class (W220) and an unthinking person put a big dent in the o/s rear door, just on the swage line (very painful).

I was advised to speak to Dent Devils. They did a perfect job without dismantling the car - they use a combination of devices to get between the layers of trim, without any further disruption.

Perfect job, and worth doing as it will otherwise attract your eye daily and will affect the value of the car at resale.

Tell us how you get on, who ever you choose.

Welcolme to the forum, Most of the garages use the dent removal guys themselves as the sort of thing you have experienced is fairly common.
