Can you use a dent puller on plastic bumper?
Using a suction cup style dent puller on plastic panels works almost the same way as using it on a metal body panel does. This is because the plastic of the bumper cover is much more pliable and resilient than a body panel is.
How do you get a dent out of a plastic bumper with hot water?
Just heat boiling water and pour it over the affected area. Reach your hand behind the dent and push it out with your hands. The plastic should be soft because it is warmed up and will be able to release the dent more easily.
Will boiling water damage car paint?
Pouring hot water over metal also has its problems. It could warp the metal out of shape, make it less sturdy; it could even ruin your paint job if your paint isn’t up to par.
