There are two places that mine tended to hang up - at the flexible retaining bar on the rear that needs to be pulled to the rear to clear the battery and at the front left top corner. There is a small lip at that corner that catches on the battery. (those front, rear, left are in relation to the car). I found that clearing the rear bar thing then lifting the cover as far as possible before pulling it off really helped a lot. It is very easy to crack some portion of that cover in getting it off.

Is this for your Elise or Exige? If Elise I have done it a few times. Also, there is a "how to do" in your manual. Anyway, from experience take off rug and there are going to be two buttons on right side to unbutton and you are all set.
