Re: Twisted Slam Panel on a Scenic 2

Hi there,

I'd reckon that the slam panel will be a bit of a nightmare to replace due to the amount of dismantling & reassembly required, plus the actual welding involved.

Can't they use a puller to get the existing part straightened in situ? It can't be that far out from the correct position if nobody noticed it was out until now.

Just my own perspective on this - naturally, you have the benefit in seeing the car & the damage.



This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
