How important? Plug cover screws.

2 are stripped on far opposite corners.

Is it a detriment to the car if I only have 4?

It is definitely going to explode!

No... Wait the opposite of that. It'll be fine. It's mostly decorative, it does hold the plug wires down. And hides the oil cap leakage.

Steve, don't get confused here: Misha is from Serbia, the country where we kicked off WW1, as opposed to Siberia, where the Germans got their nuts cracked in WW2

I'll try a dremel to cut a slot and screw it out. Maybe the junk yard will have some I can snatch up!

Implosions are just fine as long as it's a romulan warp drive. They're powered by quantum singularities. Sweden seems romulan enough to me. Like kerosene instead of proper #2 diesel.

Sorry to distress you guys, but the Siberian area was not part of World War II.
The Germans never made it that far, although technically they did touch on it near Iran.

Look at the Wikipedia ref.: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Siberia#/ ... bjects.svg

Serbia is a nice place, was there in 1997 with NATO.
