In case anyone is interested, please be aware that Beck/Arnley brand valve cover gaskets are no good. I used them a few years ago to fix valve cover leaks and they seemed fine at the time. They were a fraction of the cost of OEM gaskets. A couple months ago I got a leak from the passenger side gasket. The 4-year-old Beck/Arnley gasket was brittle and it broke in to a bunch of pieces when I took it off. I replaced it with an OEM item and will do the other side when time permits.

This is for gaskets 07D103483C and 07D103484C.

I used Elring gaskets on mine 18 months ago. I just went to order another set and found out they discontinued the gaskets around the spark plugs! OEM is way overpriced for these....Wish I had bought spares.
