I had to work this out at the weekend...and failed to use gloves (regrettably) cost $15 from Kia Remove Mass Air Flow pipe from Valve cover, then detach hose at rear of valve cover, and hose on left hand side. Remove Plastic Spark Plug cover, and remove coils (leave plugs). Remove all Bolts from inside plug cover (x8) and 9 from the outside (the last one is from behind the timing belt cover. The rear ones are tough, as there is little space to work. Then gently remove the valve cover, you may have to divert the spark cables and small hoses behind the Transmission Fluid dip stick. Remove and refit the seal / gasket, and ensure there is a little oil on the top of the block when you replace the valve cover, just tighten bolts to hand tight fit, (you may need to put a piece of newspaper between the screwdriver/wrench handle and your hand to gain sufficient grip. Reverse the process and you should be good to go.
