Intake manifold part

What year is your car?
My 2012 has a part on the intake manifold that prevents drilling the passenger side hole.
Or are you having the dealer install it.

Take the bar off the front cowl and drill it.

Pop it off with a screwdriver. Just pry it up. They are just pushed on and pop off with some prying

After you install the brace, the screws are exposed and looks kind of ugly.
Anyone know if they sell covers to cover the top of the strut?

I tried to pry them off by hand so as not to scratch paint.
I will try a wood wedge.

Thanks for the feed back
