if you can trying removing the door card and using a rubber handled hammer to rub the dents out, i removed a couple dents like that its not perfect it reduces it alot.

For the dent on the fender, you can remove your corner turn signal light and stick some sort of rod into it to pry out the dent. like euro said its not perfect but its pretty good. I had one from some fat ass sitting on my car...

I know this is an old post but I specialize in body work. Using a body pick might be able to work for you if you can wedge one in there and work the dent out little by little for paintless. But if you are going to repaint. Take a 5 inch grinder and buff then cross cut about a 4 inch area around the dent. Then rent a stud gun/nail gun. That welds the flat end of a specific nail to the low spot of the dent. Then you can take the sliding rod hammer and pull the dent out. Little body hammer taping to work out any indirect damage from the dent. and you should be good. Its up to how good you do it will depend if you need filler.
