sorry for the basic nature of the question but what are the steps in changing the cap and the rotor on the cars? is it a straight bolt on replacement or do i have to adjust something? also would like to get the torque spex...

thx a lot. am forced to work on the car myself coz the bmw dealers here in my country are idiots and I cannot find independent specialists - M owners in the western hemisphere, please consider yourself very very lucky..

regards and thanks in advance


Straight bolt on procedure. You may have a hard time geting the cap off because the upper coolant hose may be in the way of your wrench. I used a socket on the lower screw and an open wrench on the upper one. The rotor requires the use of an allen wrench. Can't remember sizes or torque specs, sorry. Hard to use a torque wrench on those little allen head bolts so I made them tight w/o over tightening. Did that make sense? Hope so. The cap is numbered so you shouldn't mess up which spark plug wire goes where, just match the numbers.
