To change the valve cover you have to remove the ignition coil cover then remove the coils. Then remove the dipstick and the PCV valve and the breather hose. Then remove the bolts and then the valve cover. To install reverse the removal procedure you also have to apply sealant to some spots on the cylinder head.

The only area where sealant is required is where the "half moon" seal (behind the intake cam) sits.
