How to change the valve cover gasket on a 2005 Kia Sorento V6

Hi. Which side do you need to replace?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Not a question Erik but I do not believe that the valve cover can be removed without removing the intake manifold which I did. You and Kia says you can do it but I don't believe it. There is one bolt directly under the manifold, maybe with a special tool.

I never said the intake does not need to be removed. I asked which side you are replacing. Because I do know that the intake does need to be removed. I was asking so I could supply you with workshop manual instructions. So did you get the job finished with no problems?
