Question Anyone has experience fixing a dent on the c - pillar??

I don't know why the heck I got a dent on that area, it's kinda high. (next to the edge of driver side rear window) Properly its touched by some careless truck / SUV driver. >:-( It's a 2" dent and quite visible. I don't know if its possible for the dent repair guy to get access behind that area. I already made an appointment for the Dent Pro guy next week, and yes I'm worried. :-( Damn, I'm the guy by far I know who parks his car most careful... BUT, it's the 4th dent of 5 months of ownership!!! @#$#%$~~~ Oh well... Anyone knows if that area could be fixed??

Hey, Randy, have you talked to the Dent Pro guy yet? I have a very small ding on the C pillar also that I'm wondering if it can be removed by paintless repair.

Yes, I had it removed. It's possible but required someone with skill.

I have a little fender ding and it is costing $1k to fix it

Plus they have to repaint. I debated not having it done since it's $200 in deductible but I know I would hate that I didn't get it fixed. The insurance company did say I could setting but they would pay they lien holder (bank) which would of course reduce the amount I owe on the car but I'm keeping it anyway till I pay it off so I'm getting it fixed.

Randy, did you happen to be watching the guy who did the work on your car? I'm wondering how easy the access to the back of the ding was. Did he have to drill any holes?

I didn't watch when he's working on my car but he didn't have to drill any hole. But I think he got access to that area thru the trunk.
