How do I remove the rear bumper cover?

I have a 2008 G6 Convertible and the corner of the rear bumper got pushed in... I do not see any damage to the actual bumper so I just want to push back out the plastic cover but can't get enough leverage behind it to get it all pushed out. I thought if I could either loosen it or remove it, it would be easier to return it to the original shape.

Thanks in advance!

Should be pretty straightforward. Two bolts near the trunk and then remove all the fender pins.

In some cases it would help to use a heat gun to soften the plastic to push the dent out, if one is not available you can try using a hair dryer.

A fix-a-dent guy can usually pop those out without panel removal. They have all the right tools & its not expensive.
