Engine Cover Removal
There are three latches that secure the interior engine cover on an Aerostar. To remove the engine cover, you must also drop the computer, which is a black steel box right under the ash tray, by removing two 1/4" hex nuts at either end of the box. Then, you must remove the cup holder by removing the single phillips head screw in the center of the junk holder part of the cup holder. It's still tricky, and you have to flex the cover to get it off. Make sure to get the clips back on properly when you replace, or you will hear/smell engine noise/odors.
