yes, you can do it that way...assuming after you remove the door panel and vapor barrier and whatever in the way to get to the spot and you have a clean shot of dent. If it is the door, a lot of the pro with the right tools and "massage" the spots by sliding between the window glasses without removing the door panel.

I watched the pro work on 4 dents on my car and it is so easy with the right tools and the cost was less than $150 for all the dents on my car...both sides as well as the roof. I got a great deal.

He's a fanatic on here. JMK BMW is on Rt 22 in Springfield NJ, prob 30-45 mins from manhattan. www.jmkbmw.com. Check the NY regional forum, he's got a thread going on about service and body work appointments. Do a search on him and you'll see many happy customers.
