If you are talking about the main top black plastic engine cover then they just pull apwards - the underside has lugs that push into clips ontop of the engine. They usually crack around the lug location points as they can be quite tight & the plastic goes brittle with age.

Just give it a firm tug upwards in each corner.

To refit just push down to lock it into place.
