Default 2009 Camry- Small Dent

I own a 2009 Camry and got a small dent (no scratching or paint tarnishes) right over the front drivers wheel. I cannot reach directly above the wheel to push it out (although it seems to be right above where the frame begins above the wheel). I also cannot reach it through the engine. Does anyone know of a way I can get to this to push out the dent?

FYI: I am not that wise with cars so please put in as easy layman terms as possible. Thank you so much for any help anyone can give me.

Mike

Here are pictures (I haven't had internet at home so couldn't upload sooner). Also, I have a friend who has the "Ding King" from a seen on TV thing and was wondering if this is something that would work. I do not know if I like the concept of putting a hot glue substance on my car but if it works I am for it.

very easy layman terms. post picture. is it fender? is it hood?

also, they rent a pneumatic suction tool to pull small dents out. requires good compressor to run.

also, here's a good one for you. I used our meat grinder suction cup to pull soft dents out.

also, you can superglue a metal rod in the dent center and pull it out with pliers. then, dab some nail polish remover on it and break it loose. just check remover first somewhere in a dark spot, if it will not react with paint. I tried acetone in small amounts, it does not, but who knows.

if it's fender, you should be bale to reach there by removing fender well cover.

BEWARE. any dent pulled back out will create a hump. metal stretches.
