No matter how careful you are, at some point you’ll gonna wind up with a dent in your car. It could be from something as simple as bumping into a misplaced shopping cart to hale damage or a fender bender at low speed. However, regardless of the cause, there’s a simple car dent repair.
All you need is a pot of boiling water, rubber gloves, and another pot of cold water. Simply pour the hot water on the dent and reach from the inside and pop the dent out. If it does not work on your first try, be patient and give it a few more forceful push! This works best for rounded sections such as the corners of the bumper cover.
For flat panels, you can use the ‘ol reliable toilet plunger to suction out the dent. Give it a yank and if everything goes well, the dent will pop out nice and flat. You can then pour cold water so it cools down faster and retain the original contour. If the plunger cannot get enough suction, it’s either you are not using enough hot water or the dent is too big to get out with this technique.
Note that bumpers and other plastic body panels stretch when dented and they almost never regain their previous shape, but you can still get them pretty close to their original state. The method used in the video is cheap, simple, and certainly worth trying first before you go to professional repair shops.
