Easy dent removal options
 
So over the weekend, some jerk put a dent in my passenger side front quarter panel. There is no paint damage, and the dent is fairy small. Is there any way to easily pop it out without causing any more damage? Now it's all I can see when I look at the front end, and it's driving me nuts.

Google paintless dent removal in your area! I did in my area! Can't even tell a dent was there!

Yeah, this is a job for a pro that's done it a gazillion times, not something you can DIY. Sucks, but that's life sometimes....GL

I was hoping for an easy DIY fix lol. There's an auto body shop not far from me, I'm hoping that since its only about the size of an avocado they won't charge too much to pop it out.

Can you get to it through your trunk? If so if you get a heat gun and heat the area where the dent is it will pop out a lot easier. Ive done this on quarters and fenders before

09bluewrx, its on the front passenger side, to be honest I havent popped the hood to see if I can get to it.

Fender, not a quarter panel. No more confusion..haha. It will have to be gotten from in the wheel well. And you should take it to a shop.

Use a hair dryer to heat up the area immediately around the dent for a couple of minutes, then hold a can of compressed air upside down and spray directly on the dent for about 3 seconds. Presto, the dent will pop out just like magic !!!

Thanks for all the help! I think I'm going to have to take it somewhere. I was able to get to the dent via the engine bay, but it won't pop out nicely.
