New Tata Safari owner shows how to fix bumper damage at home

Tata launched their all-new SUV Safari in the market earlier this year. It is named after Tata’s legendary 4×4 SUV that was available on sale few years ago. Safari has reached dealerships and their is an overwhelming response from the customer. We have seen several videos of customers modifying, doing or trying to do mild-off-roading on all-new Safari on the internet. Here we have a video that shows how a Tata Safari owner fixes a dent on the bumper at home and not at any workshop or service center.

The video has been uploaded by All in One Entertainment on their YouTube channel. The video starts with the vlogger explaining how he ended up with a dent on the bumper of his new Tata Safari SUV.  He had gone for the higher variant and the owner explains that a goat had suddenly come in front of his car and hit the bumper of the car.

The main dent on the bumper was quite big and was clearly visible from outside. The black cladding on the lower part of the front bumper has bent inside. The owner did not wish to take his new SUV to the workshop or dealership and though of fixing it at home. For all he needed was a couple of buckets of hot water and couple of helping hands. He starts by removing the cover inside the wheel arches. This gap acted as an access point towards the dent.

One of them started locating the dent and try pushing it outside using a spanner. Meanwhile, the owner and his friend were pouring hot water on the dent. The dent is actually not on any metal panel but, a fiber panel. By putting hot water they are actually warming up the fiber panel and making it more flexible.

The person keeps on pushing the panel with all the strength he has. After a point, the person pushing the dent from inside gets tired and then takes out the spanner which he was using. He puts the spanner away and wraps a piece of cloth on his hand and starts pushing it. After some time, you start noticing the difference. The dent was actually getting fixed but, it was taking too much time. The reason was the person who has been pushing it since the beginning had started to feel tired. They replace the person and within few minutes, the dent gets fixed. There is not even a single sign on the area that tells that, this area on the car had a dent.

Tata Safari is actually based on the same platform as Harrier but, is slightly taller and longer. It is available with both 6 and 7 seater option. Other features that are offered with Safari include panoramic sunroof, electrically adjustable seats, electronic parking brake and touchscreen infotainment screen and so on. Safari uses the same engine as well. It gets a 2.0 litre turbocharged diesel engine that generated 170 Ps and 350 Nm of peak torque. It comes with both manual and a 6-speed automatic transmission.
