This opens up the area to get at the motor mount and cam sprocket cover. Do you have the jack under the oil pan yet? Better do it now. Just enough pressure to hold the engine in place.
First thing is remove the 2 nuts that have the arrows off the studs. 18mm
Then remove the 3 bolts labeled with the the red X. 15mm
Then slide the motor mount up and put it someplace safe.
Get the Torx E10 socket and remove the 2 studs circles in red.
Now on the left side of the cover you see an electrical plug, it has one of the ribbed thingy's holding it to the cover. I used a flat tip screwdriver and easily pried it out of the way.
There are 4 10mm bolts holding the cover. Remove, put it out of the way and bag the bolts. This a pic from the first go around so you don't see the power steering hoses.
