Try using the hot almost boiling water method and push from the back... I've done it on many plastic bumpers painted and non painted it does well ... just don't burn yourself!
Interesting haven‘t heard of that. I’m going to tackle it this weekend. Have to figure out how to get the bumper off.

So some jerk hit my bumper in a parking lot and left a nice white scrape. Any way to buff that out?
I know the dent in the plastic part will require replacment. I don't see a way to bang it out.

Well if you have one, use a heat gun on the plastic but the scratches are for life unless you replace it. When using heat gun don't get too close to melt the plastic but just enough to heat it up where it's pliable, then use some that is about the same shape of the area that is dented and push it out. Be careful not to push too hard to push through but to push out the dent. Let cool and see if you need to continue and use same process.
