Question Replacing valve cover gasket 740il R. side

I am trying to work on replacing the valve cover gasket on my 1995 740il. Just started this project this morning, running into problems already.
On the right side I am having a problem of the valve cover not having enough room.
Cover is not clearing the a/c lines and the abs brake lines. Is it necessary to remove the fuel injector wiring harness to make room to remove the cover?
Any advice will be helpful. Slapjack740
