DIY Maintenance: How to Fix Car Door Dings

car doorIt’s not fun having dents or nicks in your car. They’re unsightly, and even if no one else notices them, you know they’re there, marring the perfection of your car’s well-maintained body. Rather than take your car to a professional and paying a bunch of money to fix it up, learn how to fix car door dings at home and take care of the problem in seconds!

There are a few ways you can do this, and they depend on the severity of the dent your car has. If there’s just a ding in your car that hasn’t caused the metal to crease, you can use a rubber plunger to try to pop it back out. Moisten the edges of the plunger and press down on the dent like you’re plunging a toilet.

If the dent is worse than this, try knocking the dent out from the inside of it with a hammer. Hold a sheet of metal wrapped in a towel over the outside of the dent and be careful to only hit the metal crease.

Small paint chips or extremely small dings can just be filled in with glazing putty. If damage to your car is too severe to solve on your own, bring your car to the service department at Gossett Kia Mt. Moriah.
