/ Suction Pump
Today I came back to my beloved car in the car park and noticed a bloody dent in the side panel!
It's not massive, only a dent and no crease in the metal etc so in theory I should be able to just pull it out.
Has anyone ever tried to use a suction pump from somewhere like Halfords to pull it out?
Car's only worth about £1500 so not going to take it to a body shop but I would at least like to try to make it look nice
annoys the f**k out of me this.
Have a dent in the side of my van ,thanks to some prick at Morrisons car park.
When swinging opening their doors ,not only do the ignorant tw*ts not care about what poor sods car they hit ,they obviously dont care about their own vehicles getting damaged.
The dent in my van was the result of quite a bang.
I have tried to push it out ,but realised I wasn`t helping.
doubt a suction pump will look at it.
Aye you're not wrong there mate.
I've seen it's going to cost me £70 ish to get it pulled but tbh the car's a 52 plate and I've got no plans to sell it anytime soon so I'll just get used to it.
If you go down the suction pump route the Toolstation is a lot cheaper than Halfords (or similar)
Unbranded but made of real metal :D
I can't vouch for the effectiveness of the above. Pushing it out from the inside might be a better option, apart from taking the inside of the door apart to get to it. My favourite of jobs :|
I now park at the rear echelons of carparks with at least a few spaces around me.
If that fails ,centre of roundabouts is my next stop
I like my treesliders ;-)
I'll have to try that.
Might give this bloke a ring, £60 doesn't seem THAT bad although I can probably think of better ways to spend £60
I have seen somebody using freezer spray to remove a dent in a youtube video.....don't know if it works from personal experience but you could have a look and see if it could help you.

Just the kind of thing i've no use for but want to buy one just in case (just to have one in truth).
Can't explain why.
I know what you mean! Specialist one trick pony type tools are as alluring as the smallest shiniest RP :-)
Depends which panel but you may be able to push it out from the inside quite easily.
