    Garage door collision

    Guest-only advertisement. Register or Log In now!
    My other car had an incident involving its garage door a couple weeks ago. I knew that I should have gotten a little maintenance done on our 30-year-old manual garage door. Now we will.

    I posted about it on our sister forum for Fiesta STs. Short story about my car colliding with my garage door.


    A picture is worth a thousand words:

    Crazy that the garage door cracked with very little damage to the ST.

    It is. Seriously, there are a couple of white scuff marks from the door cross member hitting the hatch, but NO dents. Very strange. The downside: 3 new garage doors needed. That was an expenditure I did not expect to make. The upside: They will be operationally awesomely smooth. LOL.

    I'm not even sure what that would be! Our doors are segmented and on rollers, so they do "slide" in a way, but are you meaning like sliding doors you find in chain grocery stores? That would be fascinating and @#$@ibng expensive. LOL.

    That is amazing. We might try to have the door restored, but have a "cheap" replacement dropped in while it is being reworked. Also get the other doors tuned up and a jack strap opener for that misbehaving door location.

    Those are insane!!!!!

    Any luck on getting the garage door replaced?

    We just had the motor on my side go AND the spring in the torsion bar go on my husband's side.
    Apparently it's garage door season!!!!!
