Yes, remove the front pan bolts and one or two down the side and loosen a couple more besides. The pan is now able to slip down enough for the timing cover to slip forward and off without damaging the gasket. Perhaps a dull kitchen knife to pry it loose? Don't forget the bolt on the bottom passenger side of the cover hidden behind the oil pump.

You just have to be careful. I have done it in trucks with the head and oil pan on. Remember the oil pan gasket is rubber and cork so the putty knife will likely be pushing gasket out of the way, just dont pry down on the oil pan they can bend. 



I have a video on you tube that may help you although that one is done with the oil pan off.




Also you will probably have to do the oil pan gasket cut and splice to replace the section under the timing cover.
