[V6-12v] valve cover gasket change.

I took a look at my wife's 1995 A6Q a few days ago and noticed that the valve 
cover gaskets are weeping in the front. The weeping is heavy enough to have 
coated the alternator with oil and it looks like the belts are getting 
splattered also. I've ordered the valve cover gaskets and plan to do it as 
soon as the temperature goes up a little. I'm getting to old to work in the 
cold...:-) Looking at the engine layout it looks like it's fairly straight 
forward, except for the egr/crankcase line running on the back of the 
driver's side of the engine. This looks like it's right up against the valve 
cover. Do I have to disassemble that line or is there any easy way around it? 
Has anyone done the valve covers recently and have some handy tips or 
instructions available?
