Hi, 99 Boxster ....Going to pull the Cam Covers cause they appear to be leaking oil and Bank 2 most likely has a faulty Solenoid to be replaced.. My question is how much from the top of the engine do I need o remove to get the Covers off with the engine in the car. Do I need to remove the intake manifold and fuel rails? The Trans will be dropped cause I'm doing the IMS and RMS as well. A little nervous!! Thanks in advance for any advice. V

Hi Loren, Bank 1 seemed to have fresh oil drip from bottom of cover. A lot of dark oil around perimeter of both covers. Thinking back there may have been oil around a few coil packs …so im not sure. Bank 2 has a bad solenoid that needs to be replaced anyway, CEL P1539. Measured resistance across solenoid at .5 olms and no click when applied voltage. 8 inch oil ring on garage floor. Seems like there's oil everywhere ...oil pan looks leaky as well. I thought it was RMS or IMS but didn't pull tranny yet. Kind of overwhelmed ...don't know what project to start first. Any suggestions? Thanks v

Thanks for exploded view. Still need to get bank 2 cover off for solenoid. Do I have to remove the intake and injectors or do I get all of it from the bottom? Thanks v

It could be done from below, but you are going to need the cam retention tool set to do it, and it is going to be a whole lot of fun in the process because it is pretty tight in there.  A better approach would be to drop the engine and do it on a stand, particularly as you are doing the IMS and RMS at the same time.  All of these are much easier on an engine stand.

Thanks ...right the tool that locks the cams in place. But do I have to remove anything from the top side or is it all accessible from the bottom? Vin
