Question How to Remove DOHC 16V Engine Modesty Cover

Hello,

First time poster here at the PT Cruiser Links. Have a question:

I need to get the DOHC 16V Modesty Cover off of my Cruiser. I see that there are three rubber caps. I took a small flathead and couldn't get them off. Should I apply more pressure? Or does this cover come off some other way?

Thanks.

Paul

Pull.....There are just three bushings in there that attach to 3 posts. Be careful prying with a screw driver. In fact you don't even need a screw driver. Please put it down... Yes.. That's good right there is fine.

Put both hands on each corner where the rubber groumets are and gently but forcefully pull up till each corner pops up.

If that fails, yank harder. No tools needed, just pull straight up.

Thanks for your replys guys. That worked fine and I got it removed....

I feel kinda stupid now that I know it was that easy.

Thanks again.
