Not sure if you're done, but I did the valve stem job back in September (2017) and struggled like everybody else to get the valve covers off without replacing the eccentric sensor/s. However, when it was time to put it all back together, I got my wife to take a look since she has a good eye for that kind of thing and she gave me the best advice ever.

I wish I had taken a pic, but if you can imagine turning the cover nearly vertical, have the front at a slight angle towards the opposite side of the vehicle, you can slide the back corner of the cover right over the eccentric sensor first, and then on/off the engine without too much effort.

You just have to get the angle just right, but if you do it relieves a lot of stress and there's no need for any brute force. I did it with the cross bars and everything AC related in place
