Hi . I'm sorry i have just come back on line after being away for a week and seen no one has taken care of you except Shantal ,Could you give me a bit more information on the dent in the body work ?Could you post me a photo as i can not see how this can affect the alignment could you post me a photo of the damage . If the dent is in no way on the light cluster area then it should be possible to have the headlight realigned . Rgds Grge Rgds Greg

The dent is in the middle front of the car.I was told that the headlight could not be realigned until the dent was removed.The grill cannot be put back either.Can I please have a quick response.
Expert:  indy-tech replied 1 year ago.
Would be nice to see a photo ,But if the dent did pull in the light inward then yes the repair must be done to put the light back in the original position so the light can be realigned ,Dent must be a big one to force the light angle to come inward . Rgds Greg

Expert:  indy-tech replied 1 year ago.
Sadly i'm a bit to far away for me to personally check and repair your car .I can only advise what you should do ,so if you can take a photo of the damage and post it here for me to check. Grge
