Most AC shrouds have 4 screws on the top that are sealed under some caulking. Once you peel the caulking and unscrew the screws the shroud should lift off.

ya, that is what I thought too but mine has no screws on the top. I think it is a latch type thingy on one side I can't see and 2 screws on the opposite side. I have to look closer when I get home.

It sounds like it may be, for lack of a better term, hinged. Remove the screws and it
might just come right off.

Cool thanks. It had screws all the way around. Easy as pie. When I took it off the cooling fins were smashed to all hell. They are thin as hell. It is going to take mea full week to straighten them out. Now I have to figure out how to do that. Wow, it never ends. Almost as bad as a bot.

Go to a local HVAC supply house and get a fin comb.
