engine cover

the cover should be split into 2 pieces. to remove the front portion, use a small screwdriver of plastic wedge to pop up the outside edges of the cover. once these are disengaged, pull towards the front of the car on the front of the cover, and that part of the cover will come off. then, remove the intake tubes from both sides, and carefully pull up on the front edge of the remaining cover. once the clips disengage from the front, you should be able to lift the whole thing up towards the front and remove it. when you reinstall the cover, make sure the rubber grommet that seals against the mass air flow sensor is intact and properly installed
