You need to remove the timing belt cover if you didn't. It's the cover that goes over the cam gears. There are 4 bolts. Then remove it to one side to permit removal of valve cover. You can't remove the whole thing because the engine/transmission right hand mounting.

Actually, it will be hard to completly remove the cam gear cover because the transmission/engine right hand mounting restricts it but you can remove it to one side to permit removal of valve cover

don't mean to insult you...but did you remove the spark plug boots? Because if you have the upper front cover off and the spark boots off and all the bolts from the cam cover, it should come off easy...there are quite a few bolts on that cam cover, so double check that you got them all.

I had all the bolts out, just needed to be a little more forceful with it. Not the first time i have taken off a valve cover, just the first time on this car and it was on there pretty tight.
