Dents on sharp bends Sign In

My Honda Element has a 1/2" dish dent on a molded bend. The back is unavailable. I tried the suction cup method but the adhesive supplied refuses to stick to Honda paint. My daughter's new Mazda has two of these in the door. Is there an easy way to suck these small dents out?

If you are trying to use the glue on tabs to pull the dent out, you have to first wash the paint and the tab with alcohol for it to stick.

Thanks. Tried that but no-go. Pulled off before pulling out. My first experience with this technology and I gave up quickly. Do they usually work? Have they sticking power to pull out the dent?

In the right place they do, If there is any kind of shaping or reinforcement, they likely won't. Nothing works everywhere.

The paintless dent pros don't use them much. They rely more on massaging it from the inside.
