Yup, simple case of undo all the bolts and remove.

Worth noting that the gaskets are a pain if you’re planning on removing and replacing. If I remember right, they’re a “one piece” sort of thing with the cam cover? A lot of people have used sealant successfully...

 

Doing some digging shows these as the part numbers if you want to try and ring VW and get some new gaskets...

I meant the cam cover gasket mate, if it isn’t sealed properly on refitting you’ll leak oil out of the cam cover...
