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

Did you get the job done? Any issues once you had the basic guidelines?
