Hey, friends. It's Len here from 1A Auto. Today I'm working on a 2007 Hyundai Elantra. I'm going to show you how to remove the engine cover. It's going to be a super easy job. I want to be the guy that shows you how to do it.

All right, so now it's time to learn how to remove the engine cover. You're going to take off your four 10 millimeter head bolts, assuming you have all four, unless you're on this vehicle and you've only got two. There's one, set that aside so we can't lose it, come on over, grab the only other one. It feels like it's going to probably break, maybe, let's see. I think I got it. Bolt number two, set that aside. There's our engine cover, easy peasy.

So here we go. We've got our cover. We're just going to go ahead and set it right up on here, get it lined up. When I took this off, I had two bolt holes. I had one there and I got one right over here, so that's where they're going. If you want to get extra bolts and you want to tap out the broken ones, that's completely up to you. For the purpose of this video, I'm not going to worry about it.

I'm just going to see if I can get this started in here, and this one, and there it is.
