Why do you need one?

Most passenger airbag errors are caused by the occupancy sensor (which should be bypassed/jumped due to cost of new sensor and frequency with which they fail)

But if you...

Probably the latter.

I would plan / budget to replace all the hardware and hangars. Most likely there will be other "improvements" you haven't discovered yet.

If the nuts ARE copper, they will (worst case) strip on the rusty steel studs.

Once they are off/apart, use a pipe wrench to get the old studs out and install new ones.

Unless, they are not TOO...

I think a real mechanic is a good idea.

The manifold nuts at the head are copper, so they shouldn’t be rusty. The studs may be rusty but soaking them with penetrating oil will help. I always get...

The M subframe is the same track width as the ti and other E36 cars with the multi-link suspension.

The non-M Z cars have a wider track, to accommodate narrower tires under the same Rear quarters.
