Dent removal and repair
Citroen ID dent removal and repair
If your Citroen ID has suffered from hail damage, a trolley ding or other damage, you may have dents that need to be removed or repaired. Basic dent removal and repairs usually starts with Paintless Dent Removal, or PDR for short, and move up to removing panels to reshape the metal back to Citroen ID factory appearance before reapplying paint if needed.
Paintless dent removal is often the approach that works best on smaller marks and creases, and most of the time these repairs can be carried out on your Citroen ID at your home or workplace by mobile PDR technicians, meaning no trips to the panel shop and long periods without your Citroen ID. This also keeps the structural integrity of your Citroen ID intact, as no components need to be removed or replaced.
If the dent is larger however, the only way to carry out a repair on your Citroen ID is to remove the panel from the vehicle (if possible) and manipulate it back into shape. This often damages your Citroen IDs paintwork, or the paintwork is already damaged from the initial impact that caused the dent, so repainting in your Citroen IDs original colour will also be required. Special tabs can also be welded to the bare metal and attached to a slide hammer to pull out large dents, but this also requires paint to be reapplied after the repair is carried out.
If you are unsure if the damage on your Citroen ID is suitable for PDR or will require a lengthy stay at a smash repair centre, many repairers offer a free quoting service to determine which repairs are required, and many offer a loan vehicle while your Citroen ID is in being repaired.
