I always pull the engine cover off to access the filter and oil fill. Otherwise it's too easy to spill something down there. With the cover off it's an easy, clean job.
How do you remove the top engine cover on the 3.6? I looked at mine and couldn't fine any fasteners, do you just yank on it to pop it off?

Then apply a bit of silicone spray on the fasteners so it comes off without yanking it hard next time.
