The decklid mounts need to come completely off to get the shroud out. You'll need to pull the duct work from behind the shroud at the oil cooler. Be very careful lifting the shroud if the flaps are still intact. The are that connects the flaps on either side will try to hang on the oil cooler and you can mess the fins up . Just go slow and pretend like you have an extra set of eyes to watch things with. I still think it's easier to pull the shroud with the engine in. Once you've done it a few times it's a breeze. --Ryan
take off the 10mm bolts holding the engine lid on and remove the lid and the spring. Loosen the other bolts on the hinges and remove all but one on each hinge. Spread the hinges like horns on a cow, and you'll have room to lift the shroud up and out.
This is a good time to replace the engine compartment seal piece behind (towards the front of the car) the engine. Chip it out-it's probably hard as wood, slide the new one in the C-shaped metal channel, use dishwashing soap to lube it.
Getting the spring back on without marring the paint is a trick, though.
