You might

be able to "push" the dent out from the inside... if that looks ugly you can always go the replacement route. Use the guide to dismantle so that you can place a block of pine (soft wood) that's 1/2" or so larger all around than the dent inside the cover. Put a cotton terry towel on a smooth firm surface (counter or table) to support the case on the outside. and use a rubber or wooden mallet to strike the end of the block.

If the results are not what you like/expect get a replacement cover.
