How can I remove a car dent with a plunger?
Can a plunger really pop a dent out of my car? I got into a minor fender bender and there's a dent in my bumper, but it’s not severe enough to take to the body shop to get it fixed. I’ve heard people using a plunger to pop dents out of their car. How does this work?
- Pour hot water over the dented area you would like to fix. The hot water will soften the plastic.
- Put your plunger over the dent. Pull the plunger straight out to pop out the dent. You should see the dent flattened out.
- You can also try to reach behind the bumper with the plunger to push the dent out.
- Repeat the steps as many times as needed to correct the dents.
