2005 X5 3.0 Oil Filter Housing gasker replacement

Are there any DIY threads w/ pics or instructions for the (E53) 2005 X5? Or perhaps a DIY for the valve cover gasket? I have some leaking going on and 95K miles. Just guessing without doing much poking around that it's one or both of these. I DIY most most things and from other forums and modles something like this is fairly simple.

There's a youtube video but it for a M54 E46 not a M54 E53, but the procedure is almost the same except for the fan cluth removal on the E53. Or you can scroll down to the post on Oil Leak.
