painting engine plastics question...

i started painting my engine plastics and i got one piece done. we now know what kind pf paint to use etc. but theres one piece i want to paint but it says "do not open" on it. i have it pointed out with the green arrow. what will happen if i disassemble this part? what is it? i want to basically paint all the plastic parts under my engine but some dont look like they should be removed. any advice? thx

Just cover once you take it off, with a towel or something so nothing will go inside. rice

so i guess what they mean by "do not remove" is you shouldnt drive your car without that plastic piece but its ok to drive without some of the otehr plastics. thanx guys! i cant wait to finish it all up. the blue looks a lot like that blue in the pic you posted street. but i dont have those blue hoses. where can i get those?
