Valve Cover Replacement ?

Haven't done a whole lot of searching but.......is there a trick when replacing the valve covers on a '95 2.2L? Upfront it looks pretty straight forward especially the passenger side, but on the driverside it looks like the oil dip stick housing may cause a problem, em, em, not a problem but make it a little more complex. (Possibly mistaken, I have been before) Also, what type of gasket sealant would be recommended if any. Grommets, a yes? Just trying to take care of the seepage.
Not a big problem on the drivers side. You are correct, remove the oil filler tube, 2 screws, may want to put a rag in the opening until you replace the tube. You can then get to the valve cover. Others remove the the battery also for a little more room.

what about cleaning the mating surfaces? Thoughts?
Use brake clean.
