Would there be any chance of your writing some instructions and/or posting pictures about how to do this job? It's the only job I've not been able to complete on my 2005's 120,000Km service. (I managed everythign else without garage help) The car *sounds* fine, though.
I've previsouly adjusted valves on an old Austin Mini, but that was easy - I just took off the rocker cover and everything I needed to access was there. But it looks to me like the 2005 Picanto's fuel injection array (if that's the correct word) sits right over the top of the engine cover and I'm a little nervous about taking the fuel injectors apart.
What did you have to do, or which parts did you have to remove in order to get access to the valve adjusters? I'm guessing they're right underneath the plastic engine cover, are they? But it just looks to me like other parts need to be removed first before the plastic engine cover can be removed.
Any advice would be appreciated!
