Exclamation 1994 E420 replacing valve cover gasket ?

I have a 1994 E420.

What tools do I need to take the valve cover screws out, back by the fire wall?

I cant get in there, space is to tight.

Help.

Probably a wiggle (u-joint adapter) on the socket extension.

Just plain hand tools. Just did it recently. You may also want to replace the spark plug well seals and the seals on each bolt.
