2008 Cayenne V6 - Valve cover gasket

My 2008 Cayenne V6 with 68,000 miles has a leaky valve cover gasket.
The shop wants $600 to replace it.

I would like to do it myself. The gasket set is under $30
I found a video on Youtube, where the repair is shown but the technician does not explain what he is doing. I understand most of the process however he disconnects and removes the injectors. Then he uses a special tool to replace the seals on the injectors (?)

Does anyone have a good write up on how to do this repair?
Do the injectors have to come out and be taken apart?

Thank you for any advice you may provide.

I have seen the same video and also wondered what the tool is and if the DIYer could get ahold of it.

Wonder if you could just slide the o-rings on by hand without the tool, or just skip it if the issue isn't the injectors.

I did my 06 Cayenne S not long ago, it was not too bad but there is one or two valve cover screws that you need a small tool or custom tool rigged to do it. You have to be carefully with the harness and lifting and removing the valve covers to not bend the camshaft position indicators. Basically lift up as high as possible, make sure to clear at the rear and then slide out, the harness will limit how high you can lift. Looks scary but overall not too hard. Alex

Its easier asking dumb questions than fixing dumb mistakes
