Pull harder... it's normal that it feels like it's gonna break. Make sure to lube the rubber mounts w/ some vaseline before putting it back on.

keep pulling until. There are 4 rubber mounts as Dragon explained. The best thing to probably do is tug on each corner firmly, but not wildly. The cover should come off, nd make sure you dont lose any of those rubbers on the cover.

u want to do it when the engine is cold.

U want to steadily increase the amount of pull pressure, otherwise u'll crack it.

is it ok that it slips off easily? mine seems to come off right away and it's my first time trying. should i go to the dealer and get another one?

just a regular pull and it's off. the rubber mounts are there and in place. i guess it's ok since i'll be putting an intake soon.
