Head bolt snugging (archive)

[ Follow Ups ] [ 5-series (E34) Message Board ] [ Msg. Board FAQ ]

Posted by Richard on February 25, 2000 at 21:29:40:

I have been told that "the head bolts lose their 'pre-loading' as the gasket area around them softens with age. Once the seepage occurs, re-squeezing the gasket by 'snugging' the bolts may help. Done correctly it won't hurt."
Does anyone know the proper "RETORQUE" procedure?

Has anyone done this before?
