JIMBOX If you have to go too far for dryice, get the jeep outta the sun--shade and take a ziplock bag of ic, crisscross masking tape it over the hole---let it sit for at least 15 minutes, then set the hairdryer to "HOT"--remove bag of ice and hold the hairdryer (on, full), an inch away from the ctr of the dent for 2/5 minutes, should work, never can tell !!

Now I've done it on my Toyota for a little door "depression", won't work if it's a bend/crease dent-has to be, like a "push"dent !!

Good Luck

DodgeM37 hot melt is not a real glue, it is a plastic that becomes liquid when heated, there is no chemical reaction causing it to "cure". If warm it up with a hair dryer it may soften up enough to remove. Solvents will probably not work.

JIMBOX Dryice and hair dryer, matter of fact, that works better on contour dents than "hot glue" !!!

KBR97 wd40 usually removes light stuff...If not you could try a little acetone.

WranglerLou denatured alcohol should work for you and not mess with the paint.

InfernoGirl You mean like glue gun glue? Usually that stuff just pops right off. Have you tried water?

Hot glue removal

Recently used one of those dent removers, Pop-a-dent- from O'reileys and there is some of the hot glue left on my jeep where the dent was. Was wondering what type of solvents would be best used to remove the glue without removing any paint. The kit did not come with any type of solvent.
