Yes, due to age, it definitely needs to be replaced ASAP!! As for removing the cover do a quick search for a DIY on replacing the timing belt and it will give you detailed instructions!

there should be a single 12mm bolt in the center of the cover. remove that and then you need to wiggle out the top and slide the whole thing straight up and a bit to the left.
