Valve Cover Removal Challenges

I have a 2007 650 E64 and decided to tackle the valve cover gasket and timing cover gasket. The info on the forum and the TIS have been invaluable.

I have removed a lot parts in an attempt to get the valve cover off, but still can't get the valve cover over the eccentric shaft sensor. I have attached a few pictures to show what I am dealing with. It gets bound up between the plastic wire harness, firewall and fresh air vent. Seems like I have to be missing something.

The TIS refers to a centre engine compartment partition wall. I am not 100% sure what that is. If that is the plastic duct that includes the cabin filters then it is removed.

Seems like I have to remove the fresh air duct, but I don't see that in the TIS. Want to make sure before I tear into that!

I appreciate all your input. At the point that I keep pushing it and I afraid I am going to snap the essentric shaft sensor.
