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
