2001 L-Series 3.0L Sedan
Wrench 2001 Saturn L300 (L81/3.0L V6) - Rear Camshaft Cover + Rear Guard/Mount [Removal]

Hey there everyone!

I have successfully removed the Rear Camshaft Cover Guard/Mount & have full access to replace all Gaskets contained within.


Tools Needed:
  • E8 (fuel rail)
  • E10 (guard mount - rear camshaft & passenger side rear camshaft fuel hose mount)
  • Gasket Removal Tool (or pry bar) to pop the cover lid and clean it up.
  • T30 Torx Socket (PVC fuel mount bolt)
  • Zip-Ties (optional) (I used them for pulling back the black metal sheet that has cabling connected to it to allow my ratchet to reach E10 bolts on the guard mount). I had to kneel on the camshafts to get to all the bolts. I found this to be very difficult.
  • 3M Automotive Masking Tape (optiona) (Wanted to be extra careful that I didn't drop anything or contaminate the ports.)

Note: On the passenger side rear, rear camshaft; there was a large liquid oil deposit that appears to be Rj 2000 LS2's assertion that this was the source of my engine oil leak in previous threads; It looks as if he is correct.

Next up is changing out the O-Ring Gaskets & Rubber Gasket [oil lubricated for fitting; and RTV for molding/hardening] is my plan and re-assembling the Rear Camshaft Guard/Mount and other assemblies.

Attached Pictures are Gallery A:

Best Regards,
