    From what I've read, yes you do. There's a few posts hiding around somewhere like "removing engine cover" etc. Wait for the true experts to pipe in before taking my word for it.

    I just removed my cover. Yes you remove the strut bar and then you lift up on the cover. It's secured down on either side if I recall correctly. I put the strut bar back on and tightened as much as I could. It was practically impossible to get it off in the first place so there's no way I got it as tight when putting it back on. But the truth is I don't know if its supposed to be torqued. Like nimoch says, wait for the true experts.

    I'm sure there is a torque spec for that but I'm also sure it makes no difference. just get it tight and you'll be fine.
