I downloaded a manual but the photos are not that good . I can not tell exactly how to get the top front cover off . I do not want to force anything and get the cover where it will not fit properly when I put it back on. I want to put a battery tender plug on the battery so I can keep it charged during the winter months and also be able to install a winch . I have looked on youtube but can not find exactly how guys get that panel off.
Thanks for any help you guys may give me.

If it's the cover under the front rack my 2017 has 4x spigots going into rubber doings & they just pop up when pulled up then slide towards the h/bars & up, don't know if other years are different, will help if you include a year & model.

Just pull up on the rear of the cover on the sides. It is seated forward of the guage pod. It will pop out from the back side of the guage pod. Then just pull up and rearward and it’s out. Reverse the process to reinstall. Be sure you get it seated behind the pod again. Just push it in where it’s needed. There are tabs on the forward side of the “hood”. Be sure these are inserted into the adjoining plastics properly.

As the video shows, the rearward top cover can come off without removing any other OEM parts on the Grizzly. However, the forward top cover best comes off with removing the top rack first. Removing the top rack requires removing the 4 top bolts (12mm) and then there are 2 more bolts (10mm) under the front fenders. Once all 6 of the bolts are removed, the top forward cover can be more easily accessed. Remove the rearward top cover like in the video first. On the forward top cover, there are two plastic pin style connectors towards the front, one on each side that require removing. Once those plastic pin connectors are out, pop the front of the forward top cover slightly up and then slide the forward top cover towards the rear as the forward top cover has small "hooks" built into it. Once those hooks are free, the cover should come out.

EDIT: Great, now I'm 2nd guessing myself on which direction those "hooks" face. May need to slide forward or rearward, don't exactly remember at the moment but it should be very easy to determine.
