    The big plastic one that has Abarth written on it.

    The front clip is above the turbo so it gets hot and snaps really easy if you pull it wrong, Not actually a problem though it doesnt rattle or anything.

    Mine broke on mine and it turned out that the engine mount was slack. Maybe worth taking a look?

    OK, I get the picture!
    How should you remove it without breaking any 'clips'? Mine doesn't seem to want to come away too easily, yet! Does nobody use screws or bolts any more?!

    Once you identify the mounting points get your hands a near as possible to them when you ease them off. The trick then is to put some silicone grease on the rubbers and it will come  of easy next time.

    its a good time of year to do it, the rubber's more flexible in the heat, in the winter the plastic is brittle and the rubber much harder :thumb:
