Default Engine Cover

Ok I was looking to see how to remove the engine cover and I was just wondering how. Do you have to remove the oil fill spout? I couldn't feel around the engine because it is too hot and I don't want to just go tugging and tear something up. Basically is there a how to for idiots like me?

Like Toasty said, also remove the nut on top center of engine cover. There'* also a hook back near firewall you will have to slip out from under.
