    • Locate the ding or dent on the rear of your bumper
    • Lightly hammer the dent from the rear with a body hammer

What's up, guys? I'm Andy from 1A Auto. In this video, I'm going to show you how to remove this ding in this bumper on this 2015 Chevy Silverado. We have this hammer kit from We're going to use it to remove this ding. If you need parts or tools for your vehicle, click the link in the description and head over to

All right, so on the back side of this bumper, we can actually access the area where the ding is. We can take one of these body hammers and actually find the location of where it is. It's raised up right there, so that's the area. We want to take the hammer, and we're going to tap it out. It's looking pretty good. It's almost out. I'm just going to tap it a little bit more. If you had a softer metal where you don't want a lot of this to raise up, you can use this. There's a bunch of others in there. You just tap from the back side and it's going to prevent a lot of it from raising up.

There we go. We significantly improved that ding in the bumper. It's almost not visible. I hope this video helped you out.
