anyone know the pn for the bolt/pin that holds the positive battery terminal and hood alarm switch together in the hood and all those electrical plugs that connect to the bi-xenon to the wiring loom in the engine bay?

hello Guys, just joined the forum.
I own an e46 2002 325i and would be very grateful if you could help with some nagging issues i have experienced while using it. actually have a couple of them listed below;
1. for about a month now, i noticed the electric mirrors keep turning by themselves and sometime need to wrestle with them using my seat memory button. but they randomly turn by themselves again later on. even the automatic reverse tilt doesnt seem to work now. what could be the problem and how to fix this.
2. a month after buying the car, i realised i dont get the best steering comfort i first experienced. have had my alignment worked on severally but just dont feel if like before. i have installed 245/40 ZR18 tyres but dont know if thats good for the car.
3. had a new front shocks installed but i have a knocking sound around the area each time i enter a rough or undulating surface. it doesnt feel "solid".
4. just 2 days ago, my right side lamp indicator lit and when checked, the low beam headlamp was not lighting. i tried checking the wires connecting the lamp in the engine but nothing happened, when i got into the car, my "service engine soon" lamp also lit. i tried checking the headlamp the next morning and realised it was working again but the service engine soon lamp is still on till date. unfortunately, i live in the part of the world where i cant boast of quality BMW techs and risk the chance of destroying my car further if not careful. some tips could help.
