2001 Outback Wagon. I would like to remove the plastic cowl cover below the windshield to clean out the plenum area where the windshield wiper motor is. Obviously I would start by removing the windshield wiper arms. Does anyone have any pictures, illustrations or descriptions on how to remove that plastic cover ?

I don't have any diagrams, but the cowling is usually attached with a couple of screws and 3-4 panel clips. Pretty much pops right out.

Most cars just have a bunch of plastic clips holding it on. A few tugs in the right places should pop it off.
