Hello. Are you replacing the left or the right side gasket?
the servo motor for the eccentric shaft will need to be removed. If you would like, I can provide you with detailed instructions?
Please let me know if this helps you.
VALVE COVER GASKET PROCEDURE
alright. Take a look at what I have here as it's likely more descriptive than what you've got. If not please let me know.
You may. without being there to personally attempt it, and since I can't say I have replaced one in the very recent months, I can't say for sure but if it absolutely won't come out no matter how you try and manuver it then you probably will have to remove the sensor. I do believe that it will not come out unless the cover is removed unless you are able to get in there to do it.
If that still doesn't help, I can opt out in case someone here who has done one recently and can recall the "trick" is able to assist.
it's very common to have to do a lot of twisting and maneuvering to get valve covers and other components removed from modern engine compartments. Off hand though I am not able to think of the "trick" to getting this thing out. I was hoping something contained within those files would hold the answer to that question. Since it's been a while since I have been under the hood of a 545, I am going to opt out and hopefully somebody here will have the answer that will help you. Sorry I wasn't able to help you get it removed.
yes thats the one behind power steering bracket.
sorry, i meant that for another customer
