How many bolts holding cylinder head

Hi all.

I'm on the process of changing the head gaskt and until I've removed 14+2 torx bolts from the head and it stills looks stuck.

Mine is a M50B25 (06/1990 euro spec) and I found two more, not torx.

Aside from the 16 torx bolts, are there more to remove??

Best regards

Cheers

Fernando

Did you remove 2 small ones near the chains? One is on the other side form the thermostat and the other one is on the other side.

Hi all.

Yes Andy, I removed the two small E8 near the chains.

The other two that I mention are located between the cams, almost in the center.

Thanks for the input Andy.

Cheers

Fernando

Hi all.

I found the missing bolt.

There are 14 torx bolts (E12) and 3 more (E8): two located near the front timing cover and one is holding the timing chain guide. There are 3 holding the guide and; 2 on the front and the one that's also holding the head is the one in the back.

Cheers

Fernando
