Hey guys I have no real reason to take it off just wondering. Unless I'm blind I see no bolts and don't really wanna just reef on it....too much. I included a pic of cover just to be clear what part I mean, sorry for pic quality, cell phone.

Just for the heck of it, I tried that "just pull it off" deal. Wouldn't budge. Pulled hard enough that one edge began to discolor. Must be more to it than just pulling it? Was getting dark and didn't try to look under it for bolts or what ever.

Sound funny but turn the car on let it run for a few then pull off. Should come off very easy then. My sonata needs to be ran a bit then the cover comes off very easy. Happens sometimes. Then other times just comes off.

You pull hard, if its not coming off pull harder. You wont break it

they are usually just a "pry off" covers. they are held on by these ball style studs which are screwed into the valve covers

Thanks guys. My guess is it would pry off a tad easier when the engine is warm. The plastics more pliable. Would really suck to break it.

Put some silicone lube (grease) on the rubber grommet on the cover so it pop off the ball easier

You need to cluck like a chicken and flap your arms to release the latches. Once that's done, it will come off easily.

Since your car is upside down, all you need to do is hang on to that sucker and let your weight do the trick :D
