If you're talking about the harness that runs up alongside the vent tube, then it shouldn't be tying it down. Eight nuts around the spark plugs and three bolts up front on each side. If you've accounted for all that, and removed the coils and earth strap, you just need to pry on the cover between it and the gasket. If its been on there a long time, it would be difficult to remove. Persistence and rough hands. That cable isn't holding it down, or shouldn't be.
