when you twist them two little nubs break off... but they go back in fine. I dont know why they're designed like that.

my nubs broke off when i painted the engine plastics. The screws still work.

its fine.

They Snap off.

Don't worry about them much, you got two other Metal screws keeping the plastic down.

I had to snap them when I cleaned the top end out. Threw them away.

Yeah, they just twist off, but they break pretty easily. I broke one when I was installing my grounding kit, so I broke the other one to make it even grin

I'm late but, I use needle nose pliers. Grab the inner tab and unscrew them. I've taken mine off at least 6 times and have never broke them.
