confused Remove interior side panel - Lincoln Mark VIII

Hello,
I have a dent in the side of my Lincoln and I thought since it is a Ford vehicle that it would be appropriate to ask here. Hopefully some of you know a thing or two about the interior paneling.

Anyway, what I want to do, is remove the side panel from the rear, driver side. That way, I can get behind the metal skin of the car, and push the dent out. I have already tried plungers but have had no luck.

I have posted pictures to illustrate what I'd like to do.





Thank you.

Regards,
Thomas
