Fender question

2 dings appeared on the top of my left front fender which I will call a professional to take care of. They are hardly noticeable but I can see while. Driving so it bugs me. No idea how it happened. Is it difficult to remove the inner liner to access the dings? Sorry, I do not know what that piece is called.
Thanks,
David

You'll need to remove the wheel but it takes just a minute to remove the liner after that. A few 10mm nuts and a few push rivets.

I think a good PDR should be able to get that. I would remove the headlight and try to go through there, if they do want to go through the wheel well you may be able to turn the wheel to one side without removing it. The liner is held on by a few plastic plunger/rivets, and 10mm plastic nuts as Woody mentioned.

Done - $150. Took 20mins.

I am glad it is done but I am bummed that it cost me $150 considering I don't reCall it happening. My gut says it happened when I got my car aligned. I have zero proof so I won't say anything but I will make a better effort of inspecting before dropping off in the future.

Thanks again guys.

Inspect with pictures. Trust but verify.
