    You just gotta pull it upward and give it a yank and it should come right off. Pls try to do a search and theres a few thread on it already before other members jump on you for not searching. Just trying to help and good luck.

    Do you mean the shield or literally the valve cover?For the plastic shield on top it just pulls off with a firm tug upward.For the valve cover use a ratchet set and don't get any dirt or nothing on the exposed valves...***edit*** and search first you mother F-er!!!
