be careful when tightening the bolts, they are very small and light and dont require much torque. My dealer changed by gasket during my last service under warranty, a few months later when my water pump went, the indy shop informed me I also had an oil leak from the valve cover, I told them to fix that too. They called me to ask who was the last person to work on the car, I said the dealer, why? They said, the gasket was not the problem, the dealer over torqued the bolts and left them broken in the holes, causing oil to leak through. Shop had to spend hours drilling the bolts out.
