    Ok, so I have some dents and dings in my left bedside panel. How hard is it to remove the panel so I can hammer out the dents? Also does anyone have any pictures to show me how to do it? Thanks for any help!

    i dont think theyre removable,im pretty sure its all one piece but you can get to the other side by removing the plastic splashguards and reaching up into the wheel well

    IIRC you'd have to drill out the spot welds in order to remove the bedside. Look for a guide/tutorial/how-to on installing glass bedsides.

    I went to get the the cost of the bedside panel estimated to get it fixed and they came up with 1060 dollars. In my mind, I don't think its worth it. So I came up with the idea of doing it on my own.

    either way there is no need to take off the bedside. youtube or google bodywork to help you out.if you can get behind it,you could always buy a studgun from harborfrieght.
