and will not be an issue. The 4th bolt that hold the tranny, the upper driver's side to the bell housing is a bi#ch to get to with out a special BMW werench. Consider the benifits of pulling the bellhousing...
You can replace the rear seal.
You can replace the throw out bearing.
You can replace the pilot bearing.

All these parts are inexpensive and will fail over time. It is a 4 hour job to R & R the tranny, seems foolish to not replace the things that you know will need to be done later.
