|I am living in Costa Rica (CR) and have a 2006 Tucson with the 2.0 CRDI diesel engine. A while back I was backing out of a parking space and bumped into a car which was also backing out. I couldn't have been going over 1 mph and it dented my bumper on the right rear. I want to pull the bumper out enough to bump out the dent. So here I am. I haven't really looked to see how simple the project will be. Does anyone have a suggestion or hints or tricks for me to accomplish the task?|
This is going to sound a bit crazy, but have you tried a plunger? No, don't laugh. I'm serious. :whistling:
Depending on the size and location of the dent, a plunger can be applied to the dent by its suction and pull the plastic (or metal) back out into its proper, natural shape. A small dent may require a sink plunger, which is about half the size of a toilet plunger. The one to use is the cheap, red rubber, half-globe type.
What the hey, it's worth a try, especially if it saves a trip to a body shop. :grin:
They are not too bad to take off see attached.
