Default Popping a dent on quarter panel

I have a small dent behind my drivers side door. There's no chipped
paint or anything, just a dent. Are there any tricks to removing
this? I can't easily get behind it, I don't believe. I've heard
somewhere about using an ice cube on a hot day to pop out sheet metal
dents.

TIA

Actually not an ice cube, however, Dry Ice, has been known to reverse the
condition

You could try one of those dent removers "as Seen on TV".
If the dent has no crease,it may work.

Look in the yellow pages under Paintless Dent Repair.

A lot depends on the size of the dent and if the metal has been stretched.
I've seen large, shallow door dents removed with a toilet plunger!

The toilet plunger has worked for me! Use a little vaseline around the
edges to get a good seal, pull out the dent, and then rub off the vaseline
before it rots the rubber.

I've never tried it, but I've been told that if you have access to the area
behind the dent, then you put a deflated ball (such as a soccer ball) behind
the dent and then slowly inflate the ball. This should pop the dent back
out.
