They suck the dent out ( no, not with their lips ). Only works if the dent does not have a crease and the paint is not damaged.

I had it done and it worked well.

Hi there Willie, can guarantee you if you get the write bloke he will get it from the crease, my wifes had two on the front left hand guard write dead smack on the crease. I thought no hope in hell of getting them out. Well how wrong was I not only did the dents get taken out even the crease looked spot on. Cost $200 as he had to remove splash guard etc to get to it so it obviously took him more time. I have one in the prado to get done, I will be returning back to him to do the job $80 for this one. I know alot of people say I'm wasting money getting dents pulled here and there but if you let them get that bad the vehicle starts to look like a piece of junk......WHG

i had it done on a couple of dents on a van
they used levers (all different shapes and sizes) to push out the dents

it is only for small stuff....not perfect but it made them very hard to see

I have used them numerous times,they massage the dent out with tools from the inside the metal has memory and will go back to its original shape,get the right company to do it and you wont ever know you had a dent before,you will be suprised the places they can get into and it is not expensive,as long as the paint is not broken.

A couple of years ago when reversing out of my garage my car aerial, which was on the roof, got caught up in a piece of rope and put a dint on the roof.

I thought it would be ok, but after the first rain when the car was outside the back area filled with water.

I went to a panel beater and he quoted me $1400.00 to repair it.

I tried a dent remover bloke, he fixed it in half and hour and charged me $20.00.....has never leaked again....

Hi Zacc

Have worked at a crash repairer for almost 10 years and have seen these guys work before. It's fantastic watching them remove dents with all their wierd and wonderful little tools. The guys that have posted above are right with a range of leavers and rods with rounded paltes and some use the sucker things to. Obviously there are good and bad dent removers, but most of them are good at what they do and as long as they have access to the dent (there is no bracing or anything else on the inside of the dent) then they can usually get the job done. The paint also has to be un affected, if it is slightly damaged you may be able to just polish out any imperfections left in the paint after the dent has been removed, or worst case get it brush touched with some two pack paint.

Zacc.
How I do it is to place a sheet of chip board with a cloth over it against the paint and then press on the inside of the panel with a smooth hard object like the handle of a large screw driver, takes a bit of effort but there is no clean up after so it ends up being a quick job. Eric.

Smaller size dents can often be removed by rubbing (carefully) over the surface with dry ice.
