How do I remove the exterior plastic cowl trim below the windowshield on my 1996 Limited Edition?

This is the plastic trim for the air intake (window wipers extend through it.) Thanks so much for your help!

it is a scarey process.
There is a coupla' screws here and there, and then firmly but gently pull.

Thanks, MonMix. Been looking for some screws and cannot seem to find them. Will look again.

don't know if it's the same as my 2000 EB, but here's a couple pics of them off, so you can see where the snap clips are:

Drivers side:

(it has the only screw that mine uses, it's at the right hand side when looking at this picture)

Hope it helps, go slow, the sun makes these things brittle.
