Re: Is it possible to unbend a door? ("R" Kelly)

Kelly,

Go find a small chunk of 2x4 or 4x4 like 4-6" long. Place the wood in the door jam in a sturdy place, preferably the latch area. Make sure you roll down the glass before you get started. Then start pushing on the door at the corner that needs to move inword. Just give it a good shove or two and then pull the wood and check to see how it's lined up. Repeat until you get it right.

Re: Is it possible to unbend a door? (bschurr)

I used to work at a reputable body shop and this is exactly how they will "tweak" it back into shape. There are secrets to getting this fixed, you just gotta bend it back into place, plain and simple. If it were my car that needed this, I would have no concerns about tweaking it back into place myself.
