Fellow CR-V owners;

My wife managed to run into the garage frame with our 2009 CR-V, putting a nice dent in the lower right side of the (plastic?) front bumper. The dent goes back a few inches with about an 8 inch crease.

Looking at it, I am wondering if it can simply be popped out? Is there a way to get behind it and get it to pop out? Or, as I have seen on Youtube, is there a way to use a heat gun and get it to come back out?

If anyone has any experience in this, I would love to hear about it! :)

Thanks, Dan Mullene

There will probably still be some sort of evidence of the crease. OP hasn't given a location, but aftermarket bumper covers seem to have improved in quality and aren't all that expensive.

Get directly behind that crease with a hair dryer and heat it up. Then, when it gets pliable and soft enough, smooth it out from the back with some sort of hard tool (Tool handles work well) and it will definitely look better that it looks now.
