Not too difficult of a repair. While is have not worked directly with the engine you need to start first by disconnecting the ground to the battery. From here examine your engine bay for what items you'll have to remove or move to gain access to the cover(s). I expect you may have to remove the alternator, spark plug wires, other electrical connectors and perhaps the plenum and throttle body. Take your time to note what goes where, take digital photos, make a sketch or whatever to assist you in getting in back together properly. Use a torque wrench (aluminum will strip easily) be certain not to over tighten the valve covers, too tight and you can deform them. Take your time, keep it neat and enjoy the process.
I hope this may have helped,

Removal of the plenum is pretty straight forward. You will need to replace the plenum gasket after you remove it; the gasket is not reusable. Personally, if I was going to take the trouble to remove the plenum, I would replace the plugs and wires back there, also.
I know, I have a 93 Camry V6, and it is a real pain to do the plugs and wires with the plenum on. There are no secrets or great tips on the plenum removal, just take your time. Remember that there are different size bolts, and where they go. Please get back to me if you need any more info...Hope this helps, and thanks for choosing FixYa to resolve your issue.
The graciousness of a FixYa rating for my assistance would be greatly appreciated.
