'96 850 wagon tailgate repair?

Discussion in 'Volvo 850' started by Atif I. Chaudhry, Jan 16, 2005.

  1. Looks like something bad happened to my 850 Wagon in a parking lot.

    The driver side lower light is broken and the tailgate has a large but
    shallow dent.

    I bought a new tail light off of eBay. Is there a website that explains
    exactly how to swap out the old one and put in the new one?

    Also any ideas on how much it would cost to get a tailgait dent
    repaired? (I'm in upstate NY)

    It almost looks like you could take the inside panel off and pound out
    the dent from the inside.

    Any advice/comments would be appreciated.

    If the paint is ok they have paintless dent removal services, I've heard
    they work ok in some situations. If the paint is damaged then a body shop
    will repaint the whole panel, that's a few hundred bucks.

    It'll be fairly easy to figure out how the taillight comes off once you
    have the new one. There's just a few nuts that are accessible from
    inside after removing the bulb changing cover and one floor panel.
