what year is your vehicle? Edge/MKX? 3.5/3.7L? The valve cover will have to come off. Easier to do bank 2 (radiator side) than bank 1.

Watch macbwt's video on how to take the valve cover off. Although on a 2011, basically the same process to take off on a 2008. 2011 has 2 VCT solenoids per bank since both intake and exhaust are variably controlled. 2008 only has 1 as only the intake is variably controlled.
A new valve cover gasket is advised
Valve Cover Gasket, RIGHT
Removal and Installation
- Remove the LH or RH valve cover. For additional information, refer to Section 303-01 .
- Remove the bolt and the Variable Camshaft Timing (VCT) oil control solenoid.
- To install, tighten to 10 Nm (89 lb-in).
- To install, reverse the removal procedure
