How to remove a dent from the screen's back aluminium case?

My macbook air 13 inch felt from my lap, and the aluminium case at the back of the screen has now a dent on the corner.

Do you know how to remove the dent? Do I need to disassembly completely?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Do you have AppleCare + ?

If you do Apple will replace the display assembly for a fixed cost which is still cheaper than getting a new display your self and putting it on.

Sadly, The design of the lid is not designed to be that serviceable! Here's an older display to give you an idea how yours is constructed: MacBook Pro Retina Display Teardown.

I would not bother. Unless you have serious stoved in the corners or cracked the screen. It is easy to brake other components if you are not experienced repairer. I would put a sticker over it or get a vinyl wrap.

If you have don't have applecare but have full contents insurance on house you might be covered for electronic goods incidental damage.
