Re: Timing belt cover removal (sacrifice)

Start from the right, and take the spark plug cover off first. Then the rest is torx bolts/screws in the front, and tabs in the back. Someone correct me if wrong. I don't think you can take it off without taking the OTE pipe off.

You may be able to take one out without the other, but you may also break the tabs. Worst comes to worst, just take them both out.<p>

Top cover, remove ote pipe, remove spark plug covers, I removed strut brace for more room. Then there's a 10mm bolt going in the side of the cover. Almost impossible to see, but put your finger down there, you'll feel the hole. Remove that bolt then the cover slides up and off.<p>Lower cover remove crankshaft pulley and serp belt, then IIRC it's just locking tabs.
