I just reach in behind it and push it out.
Once I had to use a stick (with a balled-up wad of cloth taped to the end to spread-out the force) to reach it.

Have seen the heat gun trick while pushing the dimple out work (depends on the dimple) but, be careful with that heat gun, the results of too much heat can be expensive.

It honestly looks like I can push it out. Any advice on buffing out the minor scratches, what do I need to buy?

I'm too uncafinated right now, but search YouTube. There are Vida on how to do it with a blow dryer. Heat it and it pops right out.
