    so i have a crease dent in my passenger fender. i have dent shield but they keep giving me the run around and saying they dont think they can fix it (whats the point of dent shield then). i was wondering if anyone could give me some tips on removing the dent myself. here are some pictures of the dents.

    -thanks

    Sry to hear....on the bright side it dont look that bad. Only sucky thing is that dents like that where its more a crease than a normal dent can be a pain....my guess would be pull the fender off and tap it with a hammer from the other side

    I know what will help a little.
    Take a hair dryer heat up the dent make sure the metal gets nice and toasty(not to toasty as you don't want to damage the paint). Immediately after spray keyboard cleaner in a can upside down.
    The heating and immediate super cooling will pull the dent out. Where that dent is at though it will not come completely out.

    Don't do this unless you like outy dents and most likely cracked paint.

    If you do ever get a huge dent you can hit it with your fist either on te inside or outside and it will fix it some.

    Visit a few Toyota dealers that do paintless dent removal and get their opinion. I think the crease is likely too sharp, but it's better to let the technician assess.
