there is a crack running across the space between the rear passenger wheel well and the rear door...it's spans the entire 2 or so inches and looks like it is spreading...do I have to get this welded or what can I do to keep it from spreading and repair it....any suggestions would help
p.s. I also want to finish it obviously after the repai has been made
thanks in advance

Re: crack in my body (bumpinVdub)

Can you post a picture of the area that has the crack? Its hard say without saying it. It could be the metal of the body that is cracked or it could be body filler from a previous repair that is cracking.

Re: (xhybrid_dubx)

it goes all the way through the panel...to the point where it seems like it is spreading...does body filler had the adhesion ability and tensile strength that a weld would have...
second thought...the body of my jetta is made of steel right...dumb question but just making sure
