Civic - ? Removing plastic cover cap over injector wires?

Has anyone removed this cover cap, and how?
I found 2 release tabs on the top surface near the rear, and one on the driver's end. Those loosen it some but its still not free.
'97 Civic HX: SOHC with VTEC.



It's for a fuel cut switch. A single wire will run from dash switch to control a new relay in engine bay. Relay will open or close the always hot wire going to the injectors. The injector grounds are switched by the PCM (computer).

If your talking about the black box, it just has 2 places it snaps together like a pencil box and then you pull the wires out.

I have no idea, but I'm curious. Is it really a 1-wire solution? I may have to do that myself, then.

I haven't done it yet - been busy resolving other issues before participating in the Green Grand Prix coming up this weekend.

BUT - I'm told that the key is (2) 10 mm. hex head screws at the back of it, which I've seen. Those, plus 2 clips I found that accessible thru slots in top top plate, and one clip at driver's side end. Maybe if you're in the UK its on the passenger side but that's a whole different question.

I'm told that the clips alone release it, but pulling the screws lets you see what you're doing better.
