Valve stem seals

has anyone replaced their valve stem seals?

i tried. I took the valve cover off and moved the camshaft but I could not get the valve spring compressor tool anywhere close to onto any of the valve springs. there is no room to fit them onto the springs.

i have a bad leak in one of my exhaust stem seals and I am afraid i will have to just pay the dealership to do it simply because of the design of the head. Im not even sure how the dealership will get to the springs. there just isnt any clearance around them to get a compression tool on.
