Oil Line Replacement HELP!

Hello Nation,
I need help with my oil line replacement on my 2001 540i Sport. I just recently finished doing the upper timing chain gaskets and valve cover gaskets only to find that oil is still dripping. Everything above the oil line is now dry but the oil line itself. I'm replacing the oil line that is closet to the front of the car. I need to know if I need to drain the oil first and what can I remove to make this process easier? I can't find any DIY's on this subject. If anyone has done this let me know. Does anyone have a shop manual with the step-by-steps?
