I'm getting ready to do the 6k service on my 2011 RT and can't figure out how to remove the spark plug covers. This wasn't a problem on my 07 RT but the ones on the 2011 seem tightly anchored to the valve cover.

The Camhead sparkplug cover are removed in the same way as your 07 RT. I pulled on mine on the bottom. One I had to use a screw driver to pry it off from the bottom.

I used the hook tool from a pick set that I have. Hooked the bottom and pulled. It does take some effort.
