Yep same location on my Thai GD but there is still room to get at them all. Looks like RHD models will end up having to remove the cowls trick.

I have never done one myself but I understand it's just a matter of removing the wipers then VERY CAREFULLY separating the plastic cowl from the body. The problem is that the clips that hold down the cowl are VERY EASY TO BREAK so using a thin screwdriver and your fingers gently pry up near the clips. The very ends by the fenders have some round pop in clips that get forgotten in doing this don't forget them.

When you are putting them back on take a minute to check the clips and making sure they are not bent back inside the metal area before pushing down on them.

Get them lined up in the middle first so you don't have to take them off again to re-align them.

if you take the cowl off, does the cloth sound proof stuff come off with it?
