Recent Inquiry 16631 regarding PDR/ GLUE PULLING states “Paintless Dent Repair, PDR, is not an operation included in the MOTOR collision-estimating database and therefore PDR included and not included operations are not part of the MOTOR Guide to Estimating pages. A glue pull dent may require an on the spot evaluation”

Additional considerations when performing PDR/ Glue Pulling methods may be included:

  • Heating the panel for adhesion and to release glue
  • Pulling with conventional frame racks or pull towers (Larger Repairs)
  • Release solution and cleaning cloths
  • Material cost (Glue, Tabs, cleaning agents etc)
