All those pics show repairs of damaged sheet metal panels. OP's damage is in the polyurethane bumper cover. Can't "pull those out" from my experience.

Let us know how it turns out. Good luck.

You may be able to heat it up a bit to see if it will pop itself out. I had a similar dent in my front lip and just being in the hot garage caused it to fix itself.

so the term you want to search for is "paintless dent removal" or PDR for a local specialist. Hit up your local porsche or other high end dealership and ask who they use. It's a very common thing.

i think it should be fine to fix, especially because it won't be too hard to get behind the bumper to try and heat the bump out.

It's not metal there, its fiberglass like the front bumper so it won't be the same as taking out a dent in the door

I have a similar question about a small dent on the front of my hood. It looks like a hail dent (but wasn't) and about the circular size slightly bigger than a 50 cents coin. So I'm looking for P.D.A. also.

But, my question is that though it seems to me that the hood latch can be removed, to allow a tool to get under the dent...I'm being told (maybe Bogusly to inflate the price) that some large structure that reinforces the hood has to be removed. Does this sound correct?

A lot of paintless dent repair is done without access to the back of the panel. I would get a second opinion if they are talking about disassembly.

As nirun suggested, car dealers tend to know someone who is good.

they use some kind of glue and a plunger and work around the area flexing it then take some kind of hammer/shaping tool and even out the metal. The tech told me it's kind of like water where when you reshape one area it effects the surrounding and it all needs to be hammered/flattened out. It's all very scary but the results are as impressive as the videos make them out to be. it can definitely be done without getting underneath, but can be tricky if it's on a body line.

Where are you located? I feel like a local member can probably recommend someone as these dent wizards are usually well known if they're talented at what they do

Thank you.

I'm back and forth between N.W. Chicagoland, and the Illinois/Wisconsin border near Antioch and Fox Lake Illinois.

Eventhough that part is plastic, I am sure a Paintless Dent Removal (PDR) guy can remove it. They do both metal and plastics and should go get a quote. If it was me, I would at least try to slowly heat it up (but not too much) with a heat gun and push it out from behind the bumper. Thats probably what they will do with a sharp dent on the corner.
