    Small flat screwdriver.....carefully pry underneath the seal. Yes, I scored the VC a bit doing this on the seal to VC face, but to no ill effect right now. Read that some ppl used dentist-like pick to pry under. I would suggest focusing your ambition on something else...if it ain't broke...

    Yes, that cyl is right under the fill hole. Glad to hear it doesn't look too concerning. FYI, cyl cover was removed to replace spark plug tube seals, #3 was leaking. Great little car.

    Hi all, took some photos of my valvetrain on similar engine (non-VTEC, SOHC). 2002 Civic, 1.7L. Around 319,000km, oil changed every 10K-15K km with whatever name brand was on sale. What do you think about Cylinder one exhaust valve, seems to be getting excessive heat?
