Default Valve cover gasket set? Which ones?

I'm looking at Acuraoemparts.com, and trying to find out what gaskets I need to replace the valve cover gaskets.


I know there are aftermarket gasket sets, but I need other small parts, so I'm getting them all at once from acuraoemparts.

Apparently these bolts are made of plastic, I broke 2 of them:

just get some o.e. gaskets..valve cover, plug well seals, and the gromits for the bolts....and was that actually attached to any thing lol. or just set on top. which bolt broke can you get vise grips on the other end to remove it? that would be your first repair to remove the parts left in there.

I got the other end out. It's one of the bolts holding the coil packs on. I was trying to tighten it, and it went without much effort. Same thing happened with the bolt that holds the engine harness cover on (the plastic covers on top that say honda, vg)

Thanks for the input, I was looking for a specific (get items 004 and 005 from the diagram) answer, I know the head cover gaskets and gasket "B" in the diagram are needed, not sure about which are the plug seals or gromits for the bolts.

Just call Acura of Augusta. You get the same discount either place. acuraOEMparts is good when you know for sure what you want but when you're in the gray, the parts guys at augusta really know their stuff for the legend. I just bought a valve cover gasket set. They come in kits.

Anything but an ebay set. They suck. Cheap because they are 18 years old and dry rotted. I found out the hard way.
