If you mean housing cover they are 35NM or about 25 ft/lbs. There is a very elaborate procedure for proper shimming of the crown bearing. Described in BMW 01 79 0 021 120 CD manual. I suspect also in the Clymer manual, or on the web in places. Just putting it back together with the original shim specs is very questionable procedure and in some cases proved poor practice leading to failure of the crown bearing again rather quickly. :wave

Preload is .020" to .039" to be determined by measuring the bearing "hole" the upper edge of the bearing when installed as related to specific reference points on the housing. If you need a picture of this let me know, I can email you some stuff.
