    Default 2000 silverado dent

    Hello, I have a 2000 chevy silverado short bed pickup I got a dent today on the door (4 inches) I was just wondering if anyone knows if I can just open the door and push it from the inside. the dent is in the middle r and there is no damage on the paint .
    Please let me know thanks..

    Welcome to the site! If the dent is in the middle and assuming where the panel is flat then you could try a suction cup method to pull it out. If all else fails you could remove the inner door oanel like you said and push it out. Too bad it's not summertime because I have heard of using dry ice to pop dents out but the panel has to be very warm (like on a hot sunny day).

    Welcome to the site i agree with the other post find a med size suction cup if the dent is spread out and not one of those little ones it should pop out let us know how it goes good luck

    Welcome! Good luck with the dent! I agree with the pulling method, but pushing it out from the back should work as well.

    If you don't want to purchase anything you can try an old fashion plunger just wet the outside rim and make sure you have a good seal and give it a tug. Good Luck............................
