Removing valve covers

Hello,
I'm new to this forum but I had a quick question. I'm wanting to pull the valve covers on my 2013 V6 in order to paint them body color. I was wondering if anyone has removed the covers before or knew if the two sensors towards front of each cover can be removed? I'll be replacing the gaskets once I pull them just in case as well are there any other things I should know about removing the covers since the 3.7 has variable timing cams?

Thanks

I just pulled mine 2 weeks ago, off my 05 GT. It's a pretty straight-forward job. Unplug the sensors, injectors, and remove the coils from the spark plugs.

The sensors are attached to the valve-train, and just stick through the covers. Unscrew each bolt around the covers, in no particular order. When you pull the covers, just make sure you pull them clear of those sensors, and don't bump them.

That hardest part on mine was that there are wire-harnesses close to the covers, and they're tough to get around. Still, just don't bump the sensors, and you'll be fine. Make sure you have some black gasket-silicone on hand, and some dielectric grease for the plug-boots.

Be careful not to get any dust or dirt into the valve-train when you take the covers off. Good luck!
