    If you are referring to the plastic covers that keep you from adjusting them more than a quarter turn in either direction, you simply need to grasp onto them with a pair of needle nose pliers and pull them off.

    If you cannot pull them off, look on either side. They have two prongs (one on each side) that clip onto the screw under them. You can take a small screw driver and pull these prongs away from the screw, while pulling the cover to make it a little easier.

    If its large plastic caps on screws that adjust simply pull them off with a pair of pliers. If its a screw in the carb with a cover over it so you can't see the screw, take something sharp like a pic poke it into the cap and pry it out.
