No pics but it takes about 10 seconds. Better if engine is cool.
1. Disconnect battery. (doesn't every auto direction start with this?)

no really just remove the oil filler cap. Pull up on front of cover. It unsnaps easily. Lift off.

Actually, it was very simple! ... Took less than 5 seconds to complete. All you have to do is line up the back guides and pull it down like you would your hood. Very simple after all. So simple actually, "even a caveman could do it!" hahaha

Yes it does.
Take the oil cap off and slide the engine cover toward you and pull up.
