How do i get this Strange dent out?

so i have this strange dent/ scratch that i have no idea how to pop it out.

its located to where i cannot get behind it, so i cant pop it out. any ideas?



you cant really tell, but the dent is from the top scratch, through the emblem, and to the bottom one. i dont think that there is any way to get it out... so if anyone has any ideas, that would be great.

Scratches? probably not without repainting it.
The dent? Might be easier to remove the whole fender, and bang it out that way.

looks like it is creased at the top, probably better off replacing the fender

Yeah, remove the inner fender liner. Then pound it out. It won't be perfect because of that crease but it'll look better. I had a big dent in almost the same spot after I rolled my old truck. I took the inner fender liner out and pounded it out.

I don't know exactly how on your truck. Someone with one like yours should be able to tell you how. Once it was out of the way I used a hammer to pound the dent out. It wasn't pretty. But better than it was.

Removing the fender can be a major PITA. It's connected to the header panel, behind signal light, along top of the fender, a few in the door jam, one on the bottom, a few in the fender-well.

I'd say it's a good time to shave your emblems, if you were ever going to.

It isn't that bad... I had mine off in like 10 minutes because it was bent up after i ran over a tire. Are the year's different with the bolts holding the fender on?

Weird. I had a 93 before and it seemed like the fender had less bolts... I had to take my bumper off to get to one of the bolts though..

see if there are any screws along the inner fender plastic, if not just cut a small hole in the plastic to get something in there!

is the paint cracked at the creases?
