I have totally lost my bentley manual for my e36 318i.... and now I need some tightening torques for some stuff.....

If anyone could tell me what the torques are on the following, that would be greatly appreciated:

steering rack to crossmember (the 15mm bolt)

rod bolts to rod (the torx bolts that attach the rod cap to the rod on the crankshaft)

and please just confirm the torque on the oil pan bolts... I believe it's 18 ft/lbs? or am I totally off?


thank you to anyone that replies

Steering Gear to Subframe Crossmember
M10 (metric, 10mm) Bolt.............................................. .......42Nm (32 ft-lb)

for the next one, I don't have anything that specifically matches your description, so I'm assuming the next bit
I have several different types of bolts for the Front Driveshaft to transmission Flange:
M10(8.8 grade)............................................ 48Nm(35 ft-lb)
M10(10.9 grade)..........................................64 Nm(47 ft-lb)
M12(8.8 grade)............................................ 81Nm(60 ft-lb)
M12(10.9 grade)..........................................10 0Nm(74 ft-lb)
M12(10.9 grade, M3 models).........................115Nm(85 ft-lb)

I also have two types for the 4 cylinder oil pan:

M6(8.8 grade)............................................ ......................10Nm(89 IN-lb) not ft-lb
M6(10.9 grade)............................................ .................... 12Nm(9 ft-lb)

Gator is an unknown quantity at this point
I couldn't find any info on the rod bolts in the Bentley manualbut in the Haynes manual it says:
Main Bearing cap bolts
Step 1 15 ft lbs
Step 2 tighten an additional 50 degrees

on the BMW 6 cd set there is a chart which reads

S38 application torque 5NM
Joining torque 30 nm
Torque angle 60 degrees

s50/S62 M10 x 1.25 application torque 5NM
Joining torque 20 nm
Torque angle 65 degrees

S54 M11 x 1.25 application torque 5NM
Joining torque 30 nm
Torque angle 70 degrees

Hope this helps.
