How do you pull a dent out of a car fender?

How can I get this dent out of my car fender? My kid got into a small fender bender. Luckily, everyone is fine, but I want to get the dent out if I can.

Answer
I’m glad everyone is okay! To pull the dent out of your car’s fender, you can use one of a few simple techniques at home.
  • Boil some water and pour it over the dented area, then reach behind the bumper cover and push it out.
  • Heat the area using a hairdryer. Once it’s really hot, use some compressed air to cool it quickly. The temperature change can be enough to pop out the dent.
  • If the dent is small enough, you can use a wet plunger to pull it out.
  • Some auto shops will sell dent removal devices. If you foresee more small dents in your future, this might be the way to go.
