    I was trying to remove the Accessory Port cover to install the FL-LM2 mini flash unit but it's stuck or very hard to remove, I am afraid I might break something, do I just have to pull it out or do I have to twist it?, thanks

    They are usually threaded.

    Thanks, please could you clarify, I did not understand what do you mean?, what should I do to remove the cover?

    No, sorry, my mistake. I was thinking of the PC flash connector. The Accessory port cover clips on. Get a fingernail under the left or right side of the cover and pull it off.

    Got it, thanks.

    Another quick question, do you know where to buy a replacement cover for the hot shoe cover with the extended back MCC-2 ?

    You'll see one side (usually the left side) has a larger gap where it can easily be pulled off. If you look closely you should even see a small arrow.

    As for the hot shoe cover, I never bother with them...they always get lost, so I just leave them off.
