Bmw n42 removal of rocker cover 2004

if u have to ask you probably shouldn't go near it.there is nothing under there for a novice!
remove the filter ( 3 clips) from the back of the engine space
there are 5 (maybe 4) torex screws holding in the housing for the filter,remove housing
remove oil fill cap
loose cover should lift off
remove the 4 coil packs (they pull up off the spark plugs)
unscrew the 2 wires either side of the VVT motor
remove bolts(12mm socket) and rocker will pull off.
They can be a bi$ch to get back on.

I drive 3181 N42 02 Reg. I'v been told the car has oil leak, jus yesterday whilst driving I could smell something like burning metal and a particular noise I don't know where it is coming from. Please...

Let an auto tech look at it because one way or the other it's going to end up on some tech's hands. Burning oil smell must be from the valve cover leak and dripping on top of the hot exhaust manifold burning it. The only time I smelled burning metal odor was from a smelting plant. It had an acidic smell that going to put you in tears.
