You will need a 13mm and a 10 mm socket, with a long 3/8 ratchet arm adapter to get at the front bolt. To remove this plastic piece, push in the center of the black plastic "button", 3 places on this cover. Don't push the center thru, just about 1/4". it will give. slide a butter knife under the button to pop it off. You may need to do the left side also. the plastic is stuck together to the other on in the middle, by the hood latch.
