How do I get my car on a flatbed without doing any damage, My car is completely slammed in the front. I need to get it towed somewhere,So I can figure out which part went bad.

I’m thinking about Starting with taking the front bumper off?

Thank u

I ran into the same problem when my S600's ABC suspension sprung a major leak and slammed the car to the ground. The solution was to jack the car up, using the jack in the trunk, at each corner. While there, take a 2x4 piece of lumber and lodge it between the wheelwell and the upper control arm. Do this at each wheel. That should be enough to get the car safely onto the flatbed.

Regarding that tow truck and the S500...that's an AMG bumper that the tower just destroyed. Given that those things are $1,000 to replace, glad there was a video out there. I hope the car's owner nailed 'em in court for negligence.
