Replacing both tomorrow and seem to have two problems ---

First, is I got this from the BMW Workshop Manual, and I can't figure out what this means: "Tightening torque 31 12 6AZ"
See below, to see where they used this for the control arm. It shows the format and the other torque settings So, how do I look up what torque settings these mean:

Here's what I plan to use, which I think is pretty close to what they should be. Let me know if this is wrong by a large amount:

  • Tension strut --- BIG back strut - Page 310- 17 . . . . . . (ALSO pages 1221-1222)
  • . . . . Ball joint = 60 (Tightening torque 31 12 19AZ)
  • . . . . Frame = 80 (Tightening torque 31 12 1AZ)
  • Control arm --- Smaller front arm - Page 310-15 . . . . . (ALSO pages 1223-1224)
  • . . . . Ball joint = 60 --- (Tightening torque 31 12 6AZ)
  • . . . . Frame = 60 ---- (Tightening torque 31 12 2AZ)
  • Strut Pinch bolt = 60
  • Lugs -- Wheel = 101 (From manual)
  • Stabilizer bar to frame = 18
  • Stabilizer bar LINK to stabilizer bar = 44
