side gill/grill removal via fender well?

i know most of you guys just pull them out or wedge them free but neither of
those sound appealing and i don't want to mar or break anything in the
process (i did give it a shot). with that said is it accessible through the
fender well if i remove the lining?

Probably. People have said that if you lose parts in the hole you can get them by removing the wheel well lining. I just squeezed, pulled, and wiggled up and down on the thin side until it started to come out. It will slowly wiggle out but you have to keep constant outward pressure (pull) on it. One side was easy, the other side made my fingers think they were going to fall off.
