Boler 74 Coleman stove 2202C6015

Hi there. I'm hoping someone can help me. I'm at my wits end with trying to remove the stove top in my Boler so I can clean the top and the rusted box. I can't get it off! I've googled my heart out and still, nothing. A neighbour came over to help. Nothing. The grates just sit on the top and come off easily. I don't see any screws anywhere (except when I try to lift the whole thing out, I can see that it's screwed to the counter top).
I've stuck a flashlight as far in as I can tell and I think I see on each side that the top may be somehow clipped to the box. But, I can't get close to those clips and I can't stick anything in there to reach them. I've been yanking at the top and it just doesn't budge.
Please tell me there's a simple solution that I'm missing?

My 73 has a single large screw on each side that holds the top on. After that, to get the whole unit out I have to first disconnect the gas line. That loosens it enough to allow me to pull it out a bit so I can get to the clips.

The top cover is just pushed onto a couple protruding bits (not sure what to call them) You just pull it off. I would suspect your's might be a bit rusted on and won't give up to easily. Maybe pull up till you can see them and give them a shot of WD40 then pry up.

Thank you! I shoved a screwdriver into the side and managed to yank it up. I think someone before me may have squeezed the little clamps too much, making it really hard to remove the top. Onto the next puzzle...

Glad I could help. And yes, lots of puzzles. I have often gone to bed not sure how to do something on the trailer. Then I wake up with an idea of how to do it. Obviously I am dreaming bolers too!!!
