How do you remove the cam gear cover on the zetec? I removed the 2 bolts but it seems as there are still more bolts but i can't see them i know people have done this

Thanks for any help...

There are a total of 4 bolts. Two top and two bottom. Even after removing all of the bolts it's a struggle. I got mine off when the engine was at operating temp. It made the cover more flexable and came off pretty easily.

its a major pain in the a$$. it is ALOT easyer with the cover warm. it will take some wiggleing though. that mount next to it is in the way. good luck.

although thats it only 4 bolts, the cover is just wedged in place by the motor mount. I was able to get mine out cold without any breakage
