Is there a "how to" anyone has used to replace the timing cover gasket? I haven't been able to find one, and most videos I've come across are for other vehicles with the engine outside of the vehicle. Thanks.

Welcome back!
For your 2.7 motor I found a you tube video titled...2001-2010 Chrysler Sebring 2.7L water pump timing chain removal. It is pretty good showing what and how to get at, including timing cover...IN CAR. Should work for your needs. SORRY but as any longtime member here knows, I don't have the computer skills to link it to you. I found it on Google search.
