Even if you’re exceedingly careful with your Volkswagen, it’s still easy to get dents and dings. From errant shopping carts that roll into your vehicle to people who carelessly fling their doors open right into your VW, many potential causes are beyond your control. If you’ve discovered a dent on your Volkswagen, head to LaFontaine Volkswagen, serving Detroit, Ann Arbror, and all of Wayne County. We have a collision center where we can repair dents — and many times, we can even use paintless dent repair!

For some dents on your vehicle, in-depth work and repainting are needed. However, the majority of dents can be repaired with a service that requires no paint at all. When you bring your VW to LaFontaine Volkswagen for paintless dent repair (PDR), our technicians will assess the damage. If a surface investigation shows that paintless dent repair will suffice, our technicians will get to work. They will need to access the dent from the rear, so they will usually remove parts of the vehicle like body panels. Once they have access to the dent from the rear, they will use special tools to slowly apply pressure to the dented area. Starting with the outer edge, they will be able to gradually mold the metal back into shape. This process is a relatively quick repair, usually taking just a few hours in the shop. It’s also much less expensive than dent repair where paint is needed.
Paintless dent repair works on a large number of dents; however, that’s not the case with all dents. If the dent’s paint is scratched or the metal itself is torn, we will need to perform a full repair with paint. Also, if the dent is too close to the edge of a panel, we may not be able to perform PDR.
