Do you mean the belt cover on the end of the engine?

Hand tight is OK or no more than 8-10Nm if you want to be precise..., try not to snap the plastic when you push it into place (actually more likely when you remove it) as it may be brittle with age...

Cheers Turtle4288, but that's not the cover I meant. I mean the actual black plastic camshaft cover that the coil packs attach too.

Oh my mistake... this makes perfect sense now. I would say 10-15Nm is OK then, sorry don't know the proper spec off top of my head, but it's in this sort of range.

No particular order, replace the rubber gasket if you can... thin film of gasket sealant on both sides of the new rubber gasket is a very good idea.

think 15 Nm might be a bit high for the small screws... no more than 10 I'd say... anyway, it should be obvious when it's tight, hardly rocket science...
