I think this is the correct spec - 90 Nm

E46 Complete Suspension Torque Specs

A helpful friend loosened and removed the 6 nuts/bolts mentioned by OP that were holding the rear aluminum subframe / carrier on my xi. Now it's tipped forward and dropped maybe an inch...binding up on the two studs that go thru the bushing...it appears.



I have a jack underneath that lift point to take weight off. However it lifts the whole car.



Any thoughts on how to get the subframe back into place?



I am thinking lifting slightly from the two rear jack points and the subframe jack point simultaneously.

Are you trying to lower the whole rear assembly?

No. Only the two front are loose. I want to get the whole thing back up against the frame. Unfortunately it appears tilted some downward and so the bushings are bound on the studs.

Yeah that may be tough, i lowered it as one unit but put it back on in pieces. Lowering it was tricky because the tolerance of the stud going through the bushing is pretty tight so any off axis force will cause it to instantly bind. The whole assembly is off axis to those studs.

I would recommend getting two jacks like you said, support the front and back and try to raise them at the same time slowly to get them back up. I basically had to do the same thing in reverse when lowering it.
