Threads are merged. I believe I made it so that all the relevant info is in the first 3 posts, though I had to delete some positive feedback posts to do it.

See post #3 for current PDF link.

Default Re: Torque Spec thread

After my research, here is what I think is wrong in post #1 :

lower strut slip-fit to kingpin/clamshell bolt: 74 ft-lbs (100 Nm)
-> Should be 81 Nm

control arm ball joint: 44 ft-lbs (60 Nm)
-> Should be 90 Nm

rear lower control arm to trailing arm bolt: 57 ft-lbs (77 Nm)
-> Should be 110 Nm

front subframe bolts: 66 ft-lbs (90 Nm)
-> Should be 110 Nm (E46 M3 uses M12 10.9 Grade bolts)

1 front diff mount bolt: 128 ft-lbs (174 Nm)
2 rear diff mount bolts: 70 ft-lbs (95 Nm)
-> Should be 200 Nm for the front / 20 Nm + 90 degrees for the rear

guibo to transmission/driveshaft: M12 - 74 ft-lbs (100 Nm)
-> Should be 115 Nm

driveshaft to differential flange: 63 ft-lbs (85 Nm)
-> Should be 70 Nm

transmission to oil pan bolts: M8 Allen - 17 ft-lbs (24 Nm)
-> Should be removed since the better text / description is a couple of lines down

Flow, where are you referencing these values from? Is there a link, or source we can access or even purchase from?

I have the TIS software on my computer and went through it.
You can find it online here : http://workshop-manuals.com/bmw/3_se...mw_gs_90003-2/

I linked you directly to the torque spec section.
I read through it 3 or 4 times before understanding it all.

Also some of the pages are cut off further to the bottom.....like you would see some items in the diagram but the part number and the item number at the bottom of the page is cut off.
