I was under the impression that we're also replacing the same 8 bolts on the oil separators too (x4 each side / no.6;11417526315 on the screenshot I posted above), hence why I added another 8 on top of the 4 for cam sensors (x2 each side / no.15;11417526315 on the realoem screenshot I posted above). I replaced my valve covers yesterday and ended up using all 12

Looks like the Drei Bond (07589062376) has been discontinued and replaced with BMW Loctite 5970 Chemical Sealant - Genuine BMW 83190404517, according to FCP. I am going to use new valves covers and replace the timing cover gasket so I won't be needing any, but just a heads up for those that need it!

NRW also makes just the rubber grommets for the valve cover bolts. I am thinking about getting them and reusing the bolts. Has anyone done this yet?

I spoke with them about this and am going to try them out. I'm currently doing an engine out service so I'll post pictures after the valve covers with nrw grommets are installed.

I think Vedubin01 was banned recently. Scroll this thread to find his instagram.

Thank you for taking the time to document this process. I'm looking forward to my gasket change next year.

Were you able to find out if you can use the new grommets with the old bolts?
