Valve Cover Gasket Replacement PN

08 here with minor oil leaks from the valve cover gasket area..

I figured it'd be good to have them replaced as they may have aged and had hardened

Cant find too much info. after searching..

Looking for some help here as to whether I am looking at the correct part number (11127841560)?

Would there also be any other accompying parts I should look out for? Bolts?

TIA

As I understand this both valve cover gaskets are the only pieces I'll be needing for the job correct?

When you replace the gaskets be sure that each of the spark plug tubes sit properly between the head and valve cover when you reinstall the valve covers, otherwise they can leak oil into the spark plug chamber and cause misfires and damage the coils.

should the bolts be replaced as well?

How many hours labour does the dealer usually charge for this? my 09 is showing some leaking signs as well but oil level still healthy. Might be something I wanna do but not urgent if the labour charges are too high.

Thanks for your tip Will keep an eye out for that!


So the gaskets are the only PN I will need for the job, correct?
