Re: inch pounds of torque?
Do NOT put normal Loctite on screws that are through plastic. Cracking around the holes will result.
The best way is to get new screws from the dealer. The BMW screws for the windshield have dry thread lock compound already applied to them.
The stock windshield had a flat rubber piece between the windshield and arm, and the screws should only be tightened enough to compress the rubber a little, but not tight enough for the shield to touch the metal of the arms.
