How do you peel this panel off ?

On a 126 lower fender body panel ( as in yellow arrow ) should I just pry the bottom off with a flat tool and remove - as seen in the CD, or must one first remove the lower panel to get it out of the way ?
I cannot really tell by looking at it.
This panel is quite loose on top. I would like to re "clip" it, so it stays with the car and doesn't just fly off .

There are two attachments on this panel: one high and one low. The lower one is a straight in, plastic, ribbed stud into a pressed socket in the quarter panel. Use a flat plasic wedge (or plastic spatula) from the bottom and pry outwards. The upper attach. (your loose one) is a clip that "hooks" down into a slot. This lifts up (or could be slides down). You'll feel the direction once you pry the lower stud loose.
The Golden Rule

will try it later today. Already have the replacement clip. I am assuming from your reply that I go directly to this panel - without hasseling the bottom one.
