It should be so easy because it is important to check the timing belt from time to time. I just bought a year 2000, 1.4s and need to see what state the timing belt is in. I undid the two bolts on th etop timing belt cover, then realised it is also locked in place by the rocker cover (what a pain). Having removed that, it still wouldn't come off. Seems like there's a piece of plastic attached to the top cover that stops the right hand side pulling out by more than about 1 cm and the left side will only pull out a little due the the plastic bit that surrounds the dipstick fouling against the power-steering bracket.

What is the need for that piece of plastic on the rhs; it is bolted up there anyway? Should I just cut it off and see if I can wiggle the cover out ? (its right up against a power steering hose but should come out if I could only free the rhs). Much easier on my Hyundai, 4 easy bolts and cover is off!
