It is a pretty weird place to get a dent. It doesn't seem like its from a rock because that would've chipped the paint. This dent is smooth.

I got quoted $200 to fix it by a mobile Paintless Dent Repair guy.
Anyone know if you can access the metal by removing the A pillar on the passenger side?
How hard is it to remove the interior trim.

that looks like a baseball or a softball hit it. do you park in the street where kids are playing ball?

I'd just pay the PDR guy. that looks like it would be a pain in the ass to get to.

If a paintless dent guy gave you a quote go for it. I've had two pulled and both are undetectable. If you figure out how it happened re-post. I'm curious. Golf ball?

Yeah I have no idea how it got there. Someone else floated the idea of a softball or baseball but I park in my driveway and I have a fence around the house. I've also never seen kids play ball around my house (except me haha).
I only play using tennis balls or a football.
Usually I pull the car out of the driveway before I play.

I wish I knew how it got there.

BTW anyone know if I can access the metal by removing the trim on the inside?
How difficult is this?

Seems like it would be a pain to do it that way. Its probably possible, though.

I know exactly how that got there(well sort of lol).. when I used to wash my old car (Accord) I used to lean the palm of my hand in that exact location and had these dents I was like wtf???

I am very cognizant of that issue re-occuring So i do NOT lean my hand there..
