Dashboard (below aircond vents) Dent

I collected my car not realising a small dent below the aircond vents. The area is made of foam, i guess. The service centre says need to change ourt the whole piece but costs $300. Ridiculous!

If it is not covered by warranty, wait until after summer to replace it. Pressure was applied to the area for a long period of time. It might return to normal after a few months in the summer heat.

Or take it to a detail shop and see if they can remove it. A bit of gentle steam might just lift the dent out. The reason I'm thinking this might work is related to carpet dents. If you use a warm iron and a wet towel, it will lift the dents left in carpet out, effectively removing the dent in the foam carpet pad. I would think a detailer could do the same.

Some good suggestions already. This might be crazy but would the suction cup method used for body dents work?

It is a nice thought, but to pull the dent out you really need to get at the underlying structure. The dent puller will only touch the surface, and not the underlying foam I suspect.
