    Default 1998 Malibu 2.4 L Camshaft Housing Cover Removal from Camshaft Housing;

    I am at the point of lifting the cover off the camshaft housing. I have screwed 4 of the cover bolts into the threaded lift holes. I have lifted the cover, but the cover is binding on the left side from where it fits into the housing for the timing chains. The procedure doesn't say what to do about that, I am sure if I keep jacking the cover up, something is going to snap. What do I do next to get the cover off?

    If all of the bolts have been removed, it must just be stuck. Try bumping it with a hammer and block of wood as the bolts are applying force. Also, make sure it is being raised up evenly.
