Customer Question
Want to replace spark...

Want to replace spark plugs 2012 chevy Malibu 2.4 ltr but plastic cover over entire engine bay has me concerned how do I remove this cover to access plugs?

Mechanic's Assistant: How many miles are on the car? When was the last time the plugs were changed?

75,000 never been changed since new.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Malibu yourself? What have you tried so far?

Looked at how the cover might be attached. Two posts at rear near firewall air and vacumn connections on left side face engine can't find any other hold down points.
