Front part of side gill fell in fender...

So I bought a set of replacement side gills and was putting the new one in when the circle thing the gill fits into fell way down into the fender.

It's pretty dark now and I wasn't able to spend much time trying to get it out but there's no way I can reach far enough in there to get it. I'll probably try to pull it out with a hanger in the morning but if that doesn't work is there a way to get into that area through the bottom of the car? Looks like there are some screws attached to the bottom panel. Thanks

I think you can remove the liner either from the wheel well or from the door jam area, not sure. There was a thread where someone made a comment on how they were reaching in from that area to pop the OEM ones out.

Yeah it worked perfect through the wheel well. Removed enough of the screws to pull out the liner and was able to squeeze my hand through there and pull out the part easily.
