Thread: lift gate

  1. #1

    Question lift gate

    I'm wondering if anyone has taken apart their lift gate on a '08 Denali(garage door mishap)...we want to try to 'pop out' the dent before we pay an arm and a leg for someone else to do it... thanks

    there are things out there that you can try like the Pops-A-Dent thing that may work. never really used it but it looks like it works well. how big is the dent?

    Never thought of a plunger, but the paintless dent removal does work and you might never know the difference.

    a plunger works great and some times if there are access hols a broom handle. if it is the plastic i even set the car in the sun on a hot day and hit the back with a good blast of compressed air and it will want to go back to the correct shape........mike
