HELP!!! Need to fix my dented bumper!

On 4th of July some asshole backed in to my Jeep, now I have a dent on my rear bumper.

The bumper is black plastic.....does anyone know how to fix this. It doesnt look like the bumber as an opening anywhere that I could push the dent back out.

Since it's seems to be enclosed am I going to have to drill a hole in the bumper? And if I do this will this cause any other issue....like filling up with water when it rains?

Please HELP!!


My dent looks like the one below except its on the rear bumper!

Great reason to upgrade your bumper.

I agree heat gun might do it or a strong hair dryer. Just be sure to move it around and not hit just one area for too long or you risk melting it.

Id try to walk it out with the bumper on first. If not then yes, pull it off heat the area then press out with a dolly or block of wood, just make sure there are no sharp edges

Good Call… I ran out to my jeep to see how it was formed and revised my post. ;-)
You were too quick for me.
