Default Engine Covers

How do I get the plastic engine cover things off my engines to inspect the upper intake manifold and see what'* under there out of pure interest?

Does the plastic piece around where you add the oil slide off? I tried pulling on it, but didn't want to pull too hard and damage something.

On mine.. I have to remove the oil neck extension piece .. after removing the cap.. simply twist the extension neck piece clockwise and it comes right off like the cap did.. a plastic bolt on the top and that'* it. There maybe a clip on the back but I don't quite remember ( since I took mine off since last year.. and left it off to help keep the engine running cooler in summer..
