C3 2003 1.4 HDI 16V 90hp Engine question

My friends,
I am trying to replace the 4 injectors (delphi ones) but I don't know how to remove that black plastic cover!!
The injector's nuts can not be removed without removing that cover first!
Any of you know how to do it? I know this model is not very common.
A lot of white smoke is coming out of the exhaust when accelerate. They want to charge me 400GBP just to remove them, plus 200 pounds per injector. Crazy.
My car only has 40.000 miles. This model 2003 and 2004 have an common injector problems.
Any help to remove that cover will be a blessing!
Thank you in advance to everyone

According to Citroëns instructions you don´t need to remove the cover/intake manifold.
Crow foot socket and extension is needed
I have various repair handbooks and wiring diagrams for C5 mk1, Xantia, XM, Berlingo and C3 mk1.
I have Lexia/Diagbox (Sweden) and Servicebox/sedre
