    the black plastic top engine cover is held on by rubber bungs, if its a 150 16 valve, just give it a good tug. the bungs will stay on the engine, simply pull those off and reslide them back in the cover. If its a120 8 valve, remove the two torx bolts at the front, then tug off the cover and replace bungs as above.
