Undo the few bolts that hold the rear fender liner by there and then just blow/shake them out.

Easy to get out
Just be careful pulling fender out
Long term fix is filling inner fender gap with body. I used large cell foam rubber you can get at any hardware store. about 1 inch sq

After you blow the pebbles out get some black silcone and cut a small hole in the tip and squease some in from front to rear. put everything back together and no more pebble problem. Let the car sit for about a day to give the silicone a chance to dry abit and you're good to go.

There is a TSB so if you are under warranty the dealer can fill the gap for you.

Link to a non-supporting vendor deleted.

Members are not prohibited from mentioning it when they have a good (or bad, for that matter) experience with a non-supporting vendor. But such mentions cannot be so specific (address, phone number, e-mail address, URL, price, part number, offer to send contact information via PMs, etc.) or so frequent that they become marketing and promotional references.

When the you remove the rear tire, you can get into the wheel well and see the gap that allows the small rocks in. I don't like the black silicon idea, but it works. Used some readily available foam from the hardware store and cut it to size to fill the gap.

The foam goes in the rear wheel well. You can feel the gap between inner and outer fenders .Fill with weather striping foam. it will keep rocks out. No need to take wheel off.
Someone referred to TSB- if there is one post number??
someone else mention black silicone cutting a hole?? better description is needed.
