    Top engine cover removal TDI 140

    Can anyone tell me how to safely lift off the plastic engine top cover of the 2.0L TDI 140 engine in my 2006 A3 Sportback? I have been told that you lift the sides and then slide it forwards (after first removing the dip-stick). I have tried this, but it just won't budge. What am I doing wrong? Just how much force can I use without breaking something important? Any advice much appreciated.

    yeh just the nut at the back then give it a yank and it comes off easy - don't worry you will not break it

    Top engine cover

    Yo... finally got the damn thing off. Needed quite a pull, but it finally yielded to my enormous strength. Got to clean the innards, which was worrying me a bit. All looks OK. Thanks again guys.
