Hello and welcome.
Can I please have the last 7 digits of your vin?
I orginally needed info on how to remove driver side motor mount. However I have allready done that. But what I do need is info on how to take the driver side valve cover off. I have already removed alternator, powersteering pump and upper timing chain cover also Alternator bracket and have bought the gaskets.
I have loosned the bolts of the valve cover allready but was afraid to apply pressure. do I have to take the large circular silinoid type things off or is just loosening the bolts and pull it off okay ( I do not want to damage anything in the process.)

You do need to remove the servomotor (cylinder thing) but otherwise should be just bolts and other cables/sensors that are attached..
To remove the servomotor you remove the screws and then screw it off.
I hope that is helpful, please let me know if you have further questions, or if I can clarify anything for you.
It has been my pleasure to help today and I wish you the best of luck with the vehicle.
No you just need to twist/screw it back on until the flange is flush and the bolt holes line up.
Please let me know if you have further questions.
