i forgot but i think it has 4 plastic hooks connect to two metal bars. u have to pull it towards the front i believe to unhook it. getting if off is easy, the hardest part would be putting it back on, that i remember.I'm looking to remove my rear center cover to put a carbon fiber wrap on it. Does any one have an idea how it comes out. I just don't want to start ripping it out with out having an idea how it comes apart. Any help would be great.
