upper timing belt cover

won't go back on, the 2 dowel pins (mostly the one on the right) is preventing it from being flush. I tried wiggling, rubber mallet, switching the dowels around, and tightening with the screw which only felt I was gonna strip or snap something.

won't budge.

what am I doing wrong?

hmm.. something!

I can't recall exactly the details but I know I fussed once too. Have you looked at the realoem.com diagrams or anything to confirm you have everything in the right place?

Perhaps, you need to clean out the inside of the holes for the dowels with brake cleaner / scraper?

well...... knowing is half the battle...!!!! LOL...

I've put my pads in backwards after replacing the baking plates on mine and wondered why my car was coming to a grinding stop. Don't worry, even the best of bmw tech's have also done this. *wink*
