Valve Cover Gasket

The old one came away with  tear in one spot. I probably could have reused 
it, added in  spot of gasket sealer in the suspect spot. However, I already 
had the new one with me, so I cleaned up the surfaces and put on the new on.

Regarding getting the oil out, a turkey baster to begin with, than paper 
towels at the end of a long reach nose pliers to pick up nearly all of the 
rest. A few remaining drops may have hung around.....

Did you NEED the new gasket, Alan?

Correct....the TB has to come off......but I did get a new gasket, and I am
pretty sure it was from SJM.

Throttle body must come off to get to the last bolt on the VC.
The TB gasket is paper so you should be able to reuse it BTDT.
A new TB gasket will be dealer only.

I'm about to replace a leaking valve cover gasket on the Avant.

Am I correct in assuming I need to remove the throttle body?

There's supposed to be a gasket between the throttle body and the intake.
Is that a dry gasket I'll be able to reuse or do I need to source that
