Valve Cover Tightening Sequence and n/lbs
I'm going to replace a valve cover seal and I was wanting to know what the tightening sequence was for the bolts.
Thanks in advance!!!!!

It is 9 Nm for the valve cover and 8 Nm for the coils. WIS does not show a tightening sequence. At the dealer most people just use 1/4" air ratchets to tighten down the valve covers, I have yet to see a valve cover break. Are you going to re-seal the chamber on top of the valve cover while you have it off? That is usually the source of the leak and not the bottom gasket.

Rule of mechanics is to go in a spiral pattern starting in the center, going outwards. Clean both surfaces and remove all leftover material, Good luck

I see the specs above...which I didn't have :-(
Do not over tighten the bolts in the center of the cover (the long skinny ones). They break easy! Found out the hard way; dangit!
