Hey Guys,

I'm trying to replace one of those plastic cowl screws that holds the cowl against the windshield.

How do you get the old plastic screw out? From looking at a new one, it seems like i have to pull the screw part upwards and out, while the base slides out downwards.

I'm having no luck.

If I remember correctly, its just a 1/4 turn type screw. Mine were stripped pretty bad, so i had to heat up a larger flat head screwdriver and melt in a slot to turn them. Once they are all loosened it will just slide out, towards the front of the car, separating in the middle.

Ended up drillin out the plastic screw. Worked like a charm.
