How do I pull a car frame?

I was in a minor accident, and my car frame was bent. How can I pull the car frame?

Great question. Straightening the frame of a vehicle is a challenging task—especially when you don’t have the right tools. In the interest of safety, you should let a professional pull your car frame.
But if you’re a mechanic looking for instructions, read on! You can follow these steps to pull a car frame with a frame straightener machine:
  • Tie the vehicle to the frame puller platform with chains or harnesses connected between the vehicle’s frame and the posts around the platform.
  • Use the hydraulic pulley system to move posts and shape the vehicle’s frame.
  • Repeat the process until the frame is back within the manufacturer’s specified measurements.
Even with a frame straightener, the integrity of the bent metal can be a bit compromised after repairs. To make sure the vehicle stays in safe operating condition, bring it to a mechanic for regular maintenance.
