Hi, as above but also recomended by manufacturer is to use a sealant on the top and bottom corner of the head on the cam belt side, just add sealant to 90 degree corner about 2" long should be enough to top and bottom then carefully lower cam cover with gasket located, doesn't need to be too tight when screwing back in place..
Any gasket sealant will do, my old sealant was black and still very elasticky.
I think it may leak in the corner near belts if sealant is not added before cam cover and gasket..
If you have a small leak and just keep tightening the ribe bolts it will leak even more.
This job takes about half an hour for a novice, just unplug coils, breather pipes, undo ribes and lift up sparkplug leads until they make pop sound.
Lift out rail with coils and plug leads attatched.
Unscrew bolts to cam cover, they are not tight and then clean up gasket face on head, add silicone to corners near cam cover top and bottom.
And then carefully lower cover and refix in place, not too tight.
I think there are pictures of the process, just google or check forum. hope this helps
