‘‘the plastic cover that covers up the screws’’ is called…the plastic cover that covers up the screws ;))
really, your using words to describe it…IS IT ! Yes that’s good enough, you’ve done a good job of describing exactly what you want. Tell that to your Honda dealer, you don’t need anything more.
That’s a heck of a lot better than much of what I get out here in the language barrier four corners where english is a second or third language to Navajo, Zuni, Arabic, Spanish AND… english !
I tell my customers, “Just describe it, tell me where it is, what it looks like, what it does or doesn’t do, what doesn’t work now, and along the way…you name it.”
The newest technology of cel phonees had made my job much much easier these days. My customer drives 90 miles from Chinle Az and wants ‘‘one dis kine’’…flips out his cel phone and shows me a picture. Beautiful ! now we’re talkin’ right parts.
I learned 30 years ago not to quibble over the exact term for the part when a description is good enough.
