Default Timing Cover Gasket

Do you need to replace timing cover gasket if you pop it off to inspect condition of the timing belt?

You should be.
When I replaced my timing belt the gasket was compressed so it got replaced with a new one that fit tighter.

How many miles are you at?
If its less than 105k why does it need checking?
