valve cover removal

New to forums here, takes a bit to learn the navigation of this place, so I'm starting here. I'm trying to remove passenger side valve covers for 2003 Mustang gt. I've read other posts that it's easier than the drivers side. So what am I doing wrong?? I have nearly everything taken off to have clearance but it still gets held up by the cams and the trans dipstick. Getting really frustrated cause this should be an easy fix. The A/C lines are in the way as well.

I have a manual so no dipstick for me but I moved the ac lines a bit and had shimmy it out but it's definitely easier than the drivers side.

On the passenger side I lifted it up and pulled it towards the front of the car with it barely clearing the cam and cam caps.

ok, at least I know I not crazy. I was on the right track trying to lift as you said. I'll just get the dipstick out of the way. Thanks for the reply.
