Car Bumper Repair Tips and Cost

If you decide to tackle the challenge of how to get a dent out of a car bumper from home, you should know that it can cost from $50 for a few tools and materials up to $1,500 to repair lights, sensors, and cameras. Check out different methods of car bumper repair below:

How To Remove Car Dents

If you’re researching how to get a dent out of a car bumper there’s a tried and tested method to do so. To fix car bumper dents, acquire either a heat gun or hairdryer, a pry bar, a jack, jack stands, safety glasses, and gloves. Safely elevate your car and remove the splash guard if necessary.

Then, warm the affected area with your heat gun. When warmed sufficiently, use the prybar to apply pressure to the dent from the inside out. Apply pressure to the deepest part of the dent first, and work through its shape evenly until the dent is less apparent or completely gone.

Removing Car Paint Scratches

There’s also a tried and tested way to remove scratches from a car bumper or any part of your car that can be done at home! If you just barely tapped the vehicle in front of you but you have some paint to show for it, no worries. With a buffing compound, a drill, and a touch-up pen, you’ll be driving around Omaha scratch-free in no time.

First, clean the area well. Run your fingernail over the scratch to determine how deep the scratch is so you can buff it with your drill attachment accordingly. If necessary, add a layer of clear coat. Let that dry and paint with your touch-up pen. Allow that to dry fully before hitting the road!

Repairing Cracks From Your Bumper

To fix a fiberglass crack, you may want to bring your vehicle to our Fremont service center as it makes for a more extensive and technical repair process with more materials. If you feel prepared to address a fiberglass repair via tutorials or you have knowledge of fiberglass repair, this can be a straightforward fix.
