What size do I use to hold the rocker cover down?

Clumsy PO dropped acorn nut into the space between the radiator support and front sheet metal. Replaced it with a bolt.

I've retrieved the acorn nut, but sud is long gone...

Anybody???

TIA

the same size as the studs that VW air cooled engines use to retain the oil strainer/drain plug plate on the bottom of the sump.........

I do beleive they are 6mm, but I"m not sure of the thread pitch being 1.25 or 1.5. You'll want to pull one and take it to a fastner store to get a good match. It's easiest that way.

Now for more advice. it's nice to have a stud tool. Esp in the metric sizes we use commonly. It's like a socket designed to add or remove studs, and I can't stress enough how much better this is than buggering up threads by using the jam 2 nuts together method!

Good Luck!

Ps. I hope the P.O. didn't use the wrong thread pitch on the bolt he used inplace of the stud, or you maybe looking at a drill and helicoil operation as well.

buy all new ones. Should take about 20 minutes to change all of them and you will have a purty leak free valve cover

The 2002 ORange parts book has the valve cover stud listed as:

07 12 1 908 106 Which does not seem to supersede to anything (could be a typo?)

In spite of that, the M10 & M30 engines (and some Motorcycles) can use the same valve cover stud:

07 12 9 908 106 which cost $0.18 each from BMW, these are what I buy.

I mention this because your parts guy may have trouble if he goes after the search like it has to be the 2002 part. My HTK has this same problem with the 02 stud, shows it as a kit NLA.

I just ran the number on a catalog search, and copied the list of applications below. Should be simple to find, just avoid mention that it's for a 2002!

Part 07129908106 (STUD BOLT) was found on the following vehicles:

with aaaaaaahhhhhir conditioning. Well its just a thought at this point. finding a good one, using that as a daily driver and parking my honda .....my 02 just drinks too much gas to drive everyday. I was filling it up every other day. (no kidding)

I want to have as much fun driving but its 120 degrees out here.

How diff would it be to find a good 91 318? and where could I go for info on these cars? I dont know a wrench from a bench, so I wont be working on it. What are your thoughts? I know you had 2-older 3 series and u were searching for reliability.

email me at lisennmo@yahoo.com
