Hello, I'm in the middle of working towards replacing some parts in the cam / timing chain area, and am having trouble with getting the timing chain cover off.  I've done everything the manual says, and everything this forum says, but simply cannot get the rotor to budge.  I've removed the 3 little allen screws securing it in place, and left the bigger 8mm center screw alone (as per the forum and the manual.  Is this thing just gummed up / carboned in place? Should I pry at it a little?  I don't want to break anything, and this one is kind of important.  :| 
After that, I'm going to have to get those oil pressure sensor wires out of the way somehow and I'm not too sure how to do that.


Here's where I'm at now:

There's no option but to disconnect the wires from the senders and pass them up through the cover I'm afraid.

As for the HES, there's a locating dowel pin to ensure the correct position. It may be that that is tight and is causing the trouble.

If you can lever the whole timing chain cover away evenly, it should bring the offending article with it. Alternatively, try heating the plate, it may expand faster than the pin and come free.

They are a very snug fit as Mike said and getting them of can be difficult. I had to actually wait till I was removing the cover and it came when I took the cover off as the seal pushed against the back of it.  But as she said the first time be gentle
