How much for a new door for a VW JETTA 2008-2012


Asked by Apr 08, 2013 at 11:47 PM about the 2010 Volkswagen Jetta

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I accidentally backed up in to a VW JETTA last weekend and thankfully the owner agreed to accept cash for
fixing the car. Attached are some pictures on what the damage looks like but my question is- is the door
fixable? if so how much would you estimate? IF NOT fixable how much is a new door and estimated fee?
Thank you so much for your help in advance! please take a good look at the picture I know its not the best
pic but its what I got.

You can show the picture to estimators at body shops and they can tell you a price. The owner should be a couple of estimates and should be able to get the car repaired at the shop of their choice or elect to pocket the money and get less for the car when sold. -- Some dents require a new door skin because of where it's damaged.

you could do a little phone work and get a junkyard one for typically 100- 120 dollars~ but looks like the damage is more than just the door~
