Dead easy. Just keep soem kitchen roll handy to cover the cams and stuff while the cover is off...



Can do worse than use a light coating of clear lithium grease to help it seal properly...



Don't forget the breather hose on reassembly :). It's also a good time to give the timing belt a visual inspection...

thanks Rich, the belt was done not long ago, but the oil seapage is lots and its all round, so i want to make sure it not going all over the belt. Ford parts man reckons the nuggets who changed the belt over tightened the bolts, thats why its leaking...
