driver side valve cover is tied down and can't be removed?

hey guys, I'm doing the valve cover gaskets on my 2001 X5 4.4i everything is going fine except I can't remove the driver side valve cover? The only thing obstructing it now is a thick loom cable that runs right over top of it, essentially tying it down. It goes back under the middle of the engine at the top and where it wraps around the side downward it goes to a T connector and it's locked in place. There's not enough room to even lift the cover over the bolts to try and slide it out. Any suggestions?
