DIY for upper timing chain cover?

Car was recently at dealership for some recall work and the tech noted that there appeared to be oil leaking from around the upper timing cover, so I was just wondering if anybody had a DIY for changing the upper timing cover gasket?

Should be in the haynes manual. 5 bolts come out plus the magnet sensor on the end of the intake cam, replace gasket, installation reverse of removal. Don't know torque of the bolts, and or if there is an order for torquing. Kind of don't think so, bottom 2 of 5 can be a bitch to get at
