BMW X5 Crease Repair – San Diego Paintless Dent Repair

Cincopa video hosting solution for your website. Another great product from Cincopa Send Files.

Here we have a really deep crease on the door of a BMW X5. My approach is to work from the outside edges but first I must knock down the crowns or also known as the highs.

Knocking down helps for several reasons. #1 is it releases tension from the center and #2 it also helps the paint keep flexibility while applying pressure from behind.

Now since I offer personal training and sell a detailed PDR Line Board manual, I can’t tell you exactly how and what tools I used to remove the dent. What I can tell you though is that this type of dent will take a lot of patience and accurate pushes to get your reflection straight as possible.

If you are interested in PDR training, please email me and I will send you some more info. I train in real situations at dealerships, body shops and with retail customers.
The whole thing about PDR training is the learning experience and environment. My training is not a classroom situation and not a routine. If it was a routine it would only benefit myself and not yourself the student. Every situation is different and that is the only way I feel a student can grasp PDR at a much better pace.

PDR Training – Advanced PDR Dent Repair – Dent Time

Cincopa video hosting solution for your website. Another great product from Cincopa Send Files.

Here is a pretty nasty crease I removed from an 04 VW Jetta. The paintless dent repair / removal (PDR) process took nearly 3 1/2 hours. I used a few tools and a knockdown. Very little tapping though.

Creases are definitely a challenge no matter what length and depth. It’s like folding a piece of paper and then ironing the line out. You have to be very precise or in the end, you’ll still see a line. Between technique, patience and experience helped assist this to become a successful repair. For more info regarding our one-on-one PDR training, contact myself (Myke Toledo) at 1.858.699.2054 or 1.800.420.3368. You may also visit my official website at www.denttime.com as well.

Jetta Crease Dent Repair San Diego / PDR North County

Cincopa video hosting solution for your website. Another great product from Cincopa Send Files.

Dent Time of San Diego – Well, we satisfied another customer and sharpened our PDR skills by removing a challenging 3 foot crease from a door. We actually removed another 8″ crease as well on the quarter panel but decided not to share it all in this video. We will be showing the video in entirely in another post. Perhaps a pay-per view tutorial but we’re not sure as of yet.


We know this video is short but you must appreciate we get to the point in a hurry. This crease removal actually took 3 1/2 hours to complete. A lot of patience and blistered fingers. This repair was challenging for numerous reasons. #1 was it was a crease. #2 We had to be precise. #3 There was backing behind the panel which causes our tool tip to be not as accurate. #4 The crease was long and became deeper as we went. #5 We had to make 5-6 passes.

Creases are one of the most challenging PDR dent repairs to achieve. That’s why we wanted to share our testimonial crease repair video. It shows the crease but not long enough to show detail. We promise, we’ll show you more from a tutorial and how we attacked it.

Stay tuned..
