Car frame bent. Door won't open. Please Help.
As I was pulling into the garage my
passenger car door was caught on
the garage door track. The door
frame right by the wheel was pulled
up and out as The car drove in. Now
the frame is bent and when I try to
open the door instead of tucking
beneath the small piece of frame by
the wheel it gets stuck on it and the
door only opens about 2 inches. Is
their anyway I can bend the frame
and push it back in to where it's
supposed to be so it will tuck into the
frame and the door will open again?
Probably not without doing more damage. Can you post a picture? I'd drive over to a local auto body shop and have them take a look at it.
A few pictures
Looks like your fender is bent out of position, maybe the door hinges bent, hard to tell. Like I said before, have an auto body shop look at it, and get an estimate. Stop in a few to get a fair price.
It turns out that my fender was bent in, not my door bent out. All I had to do was take the claw end of a hammer and pull out the fender and it works perfectly. Thanks a lot for the help! It's almost as good as new!
