Yep $6 I saved $204! Lol yeah if you detail that piece alot it get super brittle especially if you use armor all. I pushed in on mine cause it looked like it wasn't seated all the way down and it blew a hole out I was like WTF. So I finally after a year of being sick of looking at my ****ty cracked cowl which had progressively gotten worse I went to the junkyard and looked around and as luck would have it I found one that

Any tips on how to get it off/ put it back w/o cracking it??? One of my sprayers stopped working too and I haven't messed with it cause it's the pass side and I didn't want to break it an spend over $100 for a new one.

i used a butter knife to take off mine. after u remove the screws that u find under the hood you need to pop up the cowl. its being helded on by a few clips. i used the knife to help pop up each clip. but whatever u do take ur time cuz its very sensitive. i only did it once and thank god i had did it right.
