I've removed the cam cover from my GSi and I cant seem to remove the breather plate...........in the how2 it says its held on with Torx bolts but mine seems to be just cross-headed screws................bloody tight mind!
Is there a reason why mines screws?
How can I get them off with very little risk of damage?
Is there anything else I should be aware of?
Should I replace the sealant when putting the plate back on?
Yes, u need to drill the holes right through the plate.
Don't worry about re-doing the sealant, the fact that you've drilled the holes means it won't be sealed any more!
The screws were torx on my Astra - perhaps someones been there allready - it's well easy to mess up the heads.
Oh, be very carefull to remove all the swarf from the holes - you don't want it in the engine. Also, remove all the old sealant.
