    I gave a drunk friend a ride home, they got mad, and punched the dash area above my glove box, (where the air bag would come out)...now theres a "dent" and its really annoying to have to see it every day... can I replace that? I assume that you would have to replace that area if your airbag unit deployed...?
    Or (this may sound dumb...) but could I pull it out with a dent puller? I doubt that would be possible though.

    What has the person who put the dent in it said about it?

    Brought this wreck back from the dead, killed it, then revived it, still going strong.

    You have to replace the entire dash... I had to do it when I bought my truck with the airbag deployed. I got mine from a junkyard for $200.

    Good luck
