I have a 2009 Mazda6 4 cylinder engine. How do you remove the wire harness above the valve cover. I need to replace valve cover gasket.

Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose), my normal schedule online is around lunch and after dinner past midnight.

At the ends of the harness are inline connectors and the components the harness is plugged up to. Each of those has a lock that you press to pull the connector free. Once free the harness likely has push pins that lock it into place to keep it from moving around which you can pry free using needle nose pliers like a wedge. If there is a certain spot it is stuck at that you can not free, can you send me a couple pictures.
