I need instructions on how to remove the right rear interior sidepanel on my Challenger. Much to my dismay I left work only to find someone let a shopping cart roll into the side of my Challenger. It left a dent in the rear quarter panel just below the quarter window that I think can be removed by a company that does paintless dent removal. The dent removal specialist is unsure how to remove the panel and I don't want him to experiment on my car and inadvertently damage interior components. I reviewed the instructions on how to install speakers on the rear deck and it shows pulling the panel out of the way, but not removing it entirely. Looks like the rear seat may need to be removed? Any insight on how to completely remove the side panel is greatly appreciated.

lift straight up to remove the lower rear seat cushion
remove the plastic door jamb sill plate
then there is one screw holding the rear plastic quarter panel trim (was hidden by the sill plate)
the rest is held on with clips.

most dentless repair places can fix dings without getting to the backside of the dent. they did on my car anyways.

Wonder if they could fix the acorn dent in my roof without me trying to drop the headliner down? See my thread.

Thanks for the tips on removing the side panel. I have an appointment to have the dent removed on Tuesday. I'll let you know how it turns out and ask the question about removing a dent from the roof without removing the headliner.
