RE: [DML] engine cover?

The lower engine cover is supposed to latch into the fiberglass support
behind the rear fascia.  The release for this latch is high on the rear
firewall behind the drivers seat in the passenger compartment.  Sounds
like some or all of this has been removed from your car.


The louvers only clip to the lower engine cover, and anyone could open
the louvers on a stock car.


The funny thing is that I was a bit mischievous in '93 when I was
looking at Vin 10902 on the universal studios lot.  I raised the louvers
and tried to open the engine cover, only to find it was locked down and
had to be opened from the inside of the car.  The funny thing is that I
ended up buying this same car from Universal 12 years later.

Hi, list.

The previous owner of my car didn't know the answer to this question,
so I'll ask the collective:

What secures the engine cover (not the louvres) down? My car doesn't
seem to have any way of doing this, but I presume that the car was not
so badly designed. I could have sworn I'd seen a cover latch on
someone else's car, but I dunno if this was a homebrew solution or
factory original.

Also, do the louvres lock? Right now there's nothing stopping anyone
from screwing around in the engine compartment when I'm not there. :P

(Homebrew solutions are also welcome. :) )

Thanks in advance!
