Trouble removing wire harness


I am replacing my valve cover gaskets on my 00 e39 but while trying to get the valve cover off, I realized I couldn't because the wire harness is in the way. I have looked all over the place to try to figure out how to get it off but haven't figure it out yet. I have popped off the top to the wire harness as directed but did not find any screws or anything that hold it in place to remove. Please help

Try these instructions, they are for 740 but the engine is the same:

I stepped in a plate of Pasta the other day - now I have to worry about my Carbonara footprint!
