What "cover"are you referring to? Once you get the nut off, a shot of WD40 on the hinge helps--then work the door back and forth while pulling up on the door. That should do the trick.

Exactly

Might be hard to pull it off if its the first time the doors are coming off. The first time i tried taking them off i had a hell of a time.

True that.

Also, bear in mind that the "bolts" are not independent and do not come out. They are attached to the door and slide into and out of the hinge on the body.
