Misaligned car door (rear passenger side)

I backed up my car from a garage parking spot not knowing that the rear passenger door was still open. It hit a column forcing the car door in the other direction (towards the front passenger). Now, it’s difficult to close, it makes this very ugly slamming sound. How much do you think it will cost to fix it/realign it?

  • You either damaged the hinges, or the pillar or both.

    It might be a thousand or more

  • Gonna cost a pretty penny. Insurance will cover it, minus deductible. Very likely bent the door shell itself, probably the hinges and possibly the actual pillar.
