My daughter wrecked her 2003 Jetta(she had 6 days). Ran into a tree both air bags went off there is significant damage to Hood, quater panel, bumper, radiator. I am relatively poor and cant afford to pay someone to repair. If find parts at junkyards is it possible to pull this off in my garage if I purchase year subscrition for the repair videos and manuals. I know it will need to be taken to a body shop to pull frame and paint job. I am searching options and need help.
please I answer, I can donate tomorow when I get paid. Sorry but I cant get pics off my phone for some reaon

Hi there,

The air bag component of the repair should be done by a qualified mechanic, this is seriously dangerous work, and I would not recommend the use of second hand components either, there are just somethings that should be done correctly, RDS is one of them as you life depends on the system working correctly the first time as there is no second chance here.
