Car Bumper Repair

Silver car with a dent on the bumper

 

 

While unfortunate fender-benders and minor accidents may happen in Caledon, they are a part of car ownership. This includes damage to your rear bumper, which commonly happens when another vehicle backs into your car. Let’s learn more about car bumper repair, including how to get a dent out of a car bumper and how to remove scratches from a car bumper, from the service technicians at Mercedes-Benz Brampton below. With us on standby, we can help fix your car bumper! Contact us if you have any questions.

How to Fix Your Car Bumper

While you have an option to fix your car bumper at home or have professionals in Brampton dealerships and body shops to get it done, you should talk to a service centre if the damage is extensive. There is a range when it comes to the car bumper repair costs, depending on how severe the damage is and the materials needed to fix the bumper accordingly. If the lights, sensors, or cameras on newer models are damaged, you can expect the car bumper repair costs to run upwards of 1,800 Canadian dollars. A small job could cost as little as $60. Let’s take a look at the car bumper repair process for the most common types of damages below.

Car Dents

If your car bumper has dents, you will need either a heat gun or hairdryer, a pry bar, a jack, jack stands, safety glasses, and gloves. How to get a dent out of your car bumper? Follow these steps:

  1. Elevate your car, and if necessary, remove the splash guard.
  2. Warm the affected area with your heat gun.
  3. Once it’s warmed, take the prybar and apply pressure to the dent from the inside out. Focus on the deepest part of the dent first, and then work through its shape evenly until the dent is less apparent or completely gone.

Paint Scratches

You can fix paint scratches easily at home as well! You will need a buffing compound, a drill, and a touch-up pen to make your Orangeville ride scratch-free once again. So, how do you remove scratches from your car bumper? Take these steps:

  1. Clean the area thoroughly.
  2. Run your fingernail over the scratch to determine how deep the scratch is.
  3. Then, buff the scratch with your drill attachment accordingly.
  4. Add a layer of clear coat if necessary.
  5. Once the clear coat is dried, paint with your touch-up pen and allow it to fully dry.

Cracks

If your car bumper has a fiberglass crack, you should take your vehicle to our Brampton service center to get it fixed, since it requires a more extensive and technical repair process with more materials. However, if you are familiar with fiberglass repair, or you feel prepared to address a fiberglass repair via tutorials, you can fix it at home with a fiberglass repair kit. Make sure to take safety precautions at all times!

If your Georgetown ride has more than just these damages, you will need to go to service technicians, or worst-case scenario, you will need to replace the bumper.
