The top usually has a couple of pressure clips at the front, the burners are screwed to the underneath of the cooktop so I wouldn't pry up much on the top with them still attached or the gas pipes underneath could be damaged as well. Gookus does like to find it's way between the panal edges and stick things together.

okay so I know how to open it now do you think after turning off the gas and removing the excess in the lines i could use a small grinder wheel or drill out the three screws remove the top for cleaning up soak the burners in cleaner and get them clean as possible and just replace the screws with new screws 57 bucks a burner seams needless since it still functions properly and is just covered in Gook thanks
