Unhappy How do i fix this door dent???

Got a nice dent on the weekend on my driver side door. Right above the door handle. The door opens fine but the window has a hard time opening and closing. Any ideas would be great.

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

With the window up, Remove the inside door pannel, and push the dent out.

It's worth a try

Not sure if that will work though, that dent seems like it's right where the door skin attaches to the door "frame"

Another suggestion. Put another one just like it on the other side and tell people that it came from the factory that way.

I would call a paintless dent technician to get his opinion. much cheaper than a body shop.

To fix the dent you could just mentally fix it and get over it (thats what I did) know you may dent it again. If you wheel hard its not IF you dent your truck its WHEN you dent your truck!

The main problem is the window is not rolling up and down properly. I would like to fix that problem. And i would like to pop the dent out as much as i can.

Better yet I think he wants to put the truck up to the computer and have us all fix it together. Dude go to a body shop.

I agree with other. Best way is to take the door apart from the inside and use a rubber mallet to pop it out. Or use one of those PoPs a Dent thing?
