Valve cover replacement?

Hello i noticed a leak coming from my valve cover in the front nearest to the PS pump and looks like its the seal. I know they have clips and what not but is the change over to new gaskets that difficult? How long should something like this take? I have a few leaks i am trying to address and would like to get it done this week. thanks guys?

Be sure it's actually coming from there and the bolts are tight, VC gaskets leaks aren't common. If it IS that gasket, it's a little more complicated than Any other VC gasket you're likely to have done That gasket contains the electrical plug, on each side, to control the Injectors & Glow Plugs (so it's not cheap..). You're talking about the drivers side, that's the easy one to do, you won't have trouble
