My Ride: 2001 325i
Thanks! ... and a question

This is a very helpful thread. I am in the process of renovating a 2001 325i sedan. It's been on jackstands for about a month now, getting new brakes and suspension, (Eibach / Bilstein / Meyle / etc. ... and I'm also going to take a crack at replacing the oil pan gasket, since there is oil dripping from several oil pan screw heads. I also have a new gasket for the filter housing, but that's not leaking, so I'm inclined to leave it alone, even though it's very accessible at this point. Anybody know of any FMEA work by BMW on these areas?

Question: How do you loosen the passenger side top engine mount nut? (I'm thinking long extension and u-joint type end on top of a shallow socket.
