I did mine on weekend. Quite easy. Make sure you clean off all the old gasket and oil etc off the engine. I got mine from Euro carparts for £20. And I torqued mine up to 8-10nm. Some people use sealant.

hi.cam cover gaskit has a slight weep easy job to do?what brand of gaskit should i go for?anything else i should be doing when fitting new one ? thanks chris
Not much but it is dependant on the engine type...

I think its also worth mentioning that the plastic t-spark cam covers can warp, casuing a leak or crack if the bolts are over tightened.

If its a v6, then make sure the gasket is in situ when refitting by feeling for the tabs along its perimiter. The threads in the bolts holes will strip if you over torque them too which can also cause a leak.
