Plastic Engine Cover Clips - How To Remove or Replace

How To Remove or Replace Plastic Engine Cover Clips

Removing is very simple...
Using a Philips screwdriver, press the center of the clip down. Now pull the entire out by it's base.

Install is also quite simple...
Before inserting the clip, push the center cylinder up. Now place the clip in to the socket, so that its base is flush. Press the center cylinder down so it is flush with the base.

I just bought some from the dealership yesterday. The ones under the engine were 1.89 each and the ones for the plastic covers in the engine bay were 1.25 each. I figured it wouldn't be bad to have a few extra
