I just finished replacing the valve cover on my 09 328i. It "mostly" went off without a hitch. There are two 10mm bolts that have ground wires attached...one in back and one towards the front. The one in back tightened without a problem but the front one wont tighten...it feels like something is stopping it from reaching the hole.

Any suggestions? I REALLY don't want to take the whole thing apart! Not sure if its the bolt and housing thats the issue but I doubt having a ground wire connected to a loose bolt is a good idea.
