Bumper accidents and wear happen. But that doesn’t mean that you have to live with unsightly dents, cracks, or paint scratches. You can bring your car or truck to LaFontaine Honda for a Honda bumper repair service. We are conveniently located in Dearborn and within easy reach of Detroit, Taylor, and Westland, MI areas for all your body shop needs.
In many cases, your bumper or bumper cover can be repaired rather than replaced. Whether your bumper is repairable depends on the amount and type of damage. If you are unlucky enough to have a bumper collision at a certain angle, then that is also a factor as to whether you need a bumper or cover replaced. Damaged sensors and cameras, such as a backup camera, will also need assessment.
You usually don’t have to have your entire bumper, or even the bumper cover replaced if the damage is minor or mostly cosmetic. For example, you will likely only need repair for the following problems.
Scratches that don’t cut or tear into the cover itself can easily be repainted. Even if the scratch covers a large area, it can still be repaired.
Small dents that don’t involve any tears or holes can often be pushed out and then repainted, if necessary. Tiny nicks can also be filled and then repainted without replacing the whole bumper.
Peeling paint can be sanded down to allow for the new paint to be applied. This gives your bumper a new, uniform look that matches your vehicle’s original appearance.
Your bumper is mostly held on by hanger clips. If you are missing a few clips, then those can often be replaced.
Complete bumper replacement is needed when you have actual, un-repairable damage. For example, if your bumper cover has any bad cracks or tears, then it must be replaced. You will also need a cover replacement if many hanger clips are broken. You will also need replacement if the impact bar, or another internal component, is damaged.
