Question Valve cover gasket 06' e90 330i

Does anybody have a DIY guideline? Seen videos on other years & models but nothing on my year & model, n52. Anybody?

Fellow 330i owner here, just follow any of the DIY's for a 328i, it's all the same except for the fact that we have a metal valve cover and have to use special aluminum bolts.

You have to buy new bolts when you do this job, and make sure you torque them properly.

It's not a hard job, if you can change your brakes you can change your VCG.

Cool, thanks. Yeah i'm gonna do the valve cover gasket, valvetronic motor gasket, & the eccentric shaft sensor seal. & I got the bolts as well. I know getting the one time use bolts off are gonna be toughest part not breaking them.

Get some help when pulling the cover off. It's a pita and you have to fight it to clear wiring harnesses,cams, and other goodies. Easy minus that part.
