Newb Question... Removing Engine Plastics?
How do you remove the engine plastics? I'm not entirely sure how to undo the clips holding it down, and I don't want to break them, since I'm kinda broke and can't afford to replace them (the drive to pick them up would cost WAY more than the parts themselves, I'm sure).

So umm... Hints? wink

For the GTS, use an allen wrench to remove them...

if you are are talking about the engine covers, then just poke the center of the clips down with a Phillips head screw driver. The clips at that point, should simply be able to be pulled out thumbsup
