Whether your Honda car has been nicked or seriously dented, you want to know how to repair it. If the dent is in a place where you can just push it back out manually, that’s probably the easiest solution. Yet sometimes it needs a more robust process like heating it up or buying one of those infomercial tools. Read our tips below, and know our Honda service center is also available to fix your dent or scratch too in the %%di_target_city_2%% area!

Car Dent Repair At-Home Methods

  1. Use some form of heat. Some people find success in heating up dents if they are on the plastic parts of the vehicle. You could try a hair dryer on its highest heat setting followed by compressed air. Another heat option is boiling water followed by a manual push out.
  2. Use a plunger. We don’t recommend the heated method for steel parts of your vehicle, but plunging the dent back into place might help.
  3. Get a dent removal kit. There are kits made specifically for dent repair. If you’ve got the time to order one online, it’ll come with a set of instructions for you to follow.

What If It’s Just a Scratch?

Usually dents and scratches go hand-in-hand, but sometimes you don’t have the headache of the former. Although a scratch is less immediate, unfixed scratches can turn rusty or grow to be a bigger issue. We would only recommend trying to fix a scratch if it hasn’t totally gone through the clear coat of your car’s paint. Get a damp microfiber cloth and some toothpaste and see if you can clear away the blemish. Keep in mind, our Honda-certified service department can fix deeper scratches and match the paint color exactly.
