left pvc valve location 4.8i right hand drive

Hi guy's looking for a little help to find the left pvc valve location?

i have bmw 2007 4.8i with 140k's i think i have the n62.

issue is its a little shaky and blowing some smoke on start up. the only code i get is for throttle position but i have cleaned the throttle body out with no luck.

what i have do so far:

replaced the right hand number 13 Repair kit, pressure regulating valve (please see image attached)

on replacement the i noticed the car shake getting better but still there and the revs on idle is down a little and more smooth. the old pvc valve was not broken but was very dirty.

replaced oil and filter and noticed a smoother engine as well.

i want to replace the left hand number 13 Repair kit, pressure regulating valve (please see image attached) but i can not see it i have taken a photo to show the engine left side it is meant to be behind the oil filler an the image displays but i can not see it.

Do i need to take the black cover off to get to it? any help would be fantastic cheers Peter

If anyone is interested I ended up find the pcv valve it is connected to the ccv pipe, cleaned out the pipe put the new pcv in and no more smoke or shaking for now.
