Has anyone ever experienced a leak towards the back of the valve cover with no signs of smoke/smell? I'm just trying to make sure this is where the leak seems to be coming from before I place my order from FCP for a new valve cover kit...

My list is:

- New Valve Cover. Comes with all bolts and gaskets.
- BMW Valvetronic Actuator Seal with new self tapping screws
- New PCV Vent Hose

I recently replaced my coolant overflow hose, so that's new. I believe I have all the tools necesarry to do the job except for some crowfeet wrench adapters to torque the gas lines down. Anything I'm missing?
I'm so lazy - I have to do this because mine is leaking, and to install the MILVS. I'm just not motivated lol
Nothing to it. I was weary also, it's not hard at all.
