Removing the inner liner on the front wheel well/fender to fix a dent

Anyone got some tips on how to remove the inner liner on the front wheel well? I have a dent on the fender that I want to access and punch out by removing the liner enough to reach in there. Thought I would check with y'all before tinkering with it.

It's pretty straight forward,just remove the bolts holding the liner in place

Done

Thanks dano, I did it. It was five 7/32" bolts, two 11mm bolts, and one Christmas tree plug. Had to shimmy the liner around pretty good to access the dent on the wheel well. Just stuck my hand in there and pressed on the inside of the dent and it popped out. It turned out really well IMO.

Before:










After:














Will have a paintless dent repair guy touch it up for far less than what I started with.
