Knock sensor

I am looking for any information on how to change out both knock sensors and all of the gaskets on the heads, manifold, and head cover gaskets. I have a 2008 650i manual transmission

I think there are 4 knock sensors, search for leaking coolant transfer pipe and you will find tons of description how to get to those sensors

as for gaskets on the heads, I guess you meant valve stem seals / timing cover gaskets / valley pan gaskets / valve cover gaskets. If you search for these you will find them all.
