I have had the same difficulty removing the timing chain covers from my turbo. If you are sure that you have removed ALL of the cover nuts, carefully rap the cover all around with a rubber mallet. Then use two broad tip screwdrivers, one on the top of the cover, one on the bottom and rock the cover off the tensioner o-ring. It will pop once the sealing surface of the cover over the o-ring passes by the o-ring on the tensioner shaft. Just be careful not to nick the cover sealing area when you are plying. Use the broadest tip you can find. This will help distribute the load across a broader area.
