Hey all,

I have a Silvia which I got in 2007.  Recently, I noticed the boiler was leaking so purchased a new boiler gasket.  While I was shopping I also got a new "chrome" plastic cover (I'm sure you know which bit I mean - covers the group and is surprisingly cheap and tacky compared to the rest of the machine).  

I have successfully changed the gasket but couldn't see how to get to the screws for the plastic cover thing without completely removing the boiler, which seems a bit excessive!

Was I missing something?  Any thoughts would be appreciated.

N/M I just found this answer:  "silvia grouphead cover replacement?"

Was hoping I didn't have to remove the front housing screws *sobs*

you could remove the plastic cover without removing the lower grouphead from the boiler
it is a little tricky
after removing the 2 screws inside
you can flex the stainless steel plate slowwlyyyyyy and the cover will put into place
