Computer cover? Are you talking about the ICC fascia? I can't imagine Ford telling anyone to get a hacksaw blade out and start cutting dash pieces.

use a centre punch and tap it round, then use vice grips.

Ah, gotcha!

When someone just says 'computer', it could mean many things! :)

Still, I find it hard to believe that Ford would tell anyone to get a hacksaw blade and start cutting parts of their car off!

thats actually the computer not a cover so be careful, but yes, best option is to use a hacksaw to cut a grove in it (so that you can use a flat bladed screwdriver to get it out). They are a one use bolt similar to that used on ignition barrels which snap off when they get to the right tension.
