Question about 2002 Buick Regal
Do not over tighten,, this torque doesn't really need a setting,, make them just over finger tight and then using a socket or wrench give them each a quarter turn

Testimonial: "This is what I normally do, but my son insisted that I should find out how much torque use for these covers, uneven tightness and oil could leak thank"
I agree there is no exact torque spec. And that is because you need to avoid pinching the gasket.
Start in the center and work your way out in a widening circle.
Just take out the loose slack on the first pass.
Do the extra quarter turn on the second pass.
But then wait 5 minutes, maybe warming up the engine, and check them again.
Gaskets take a little time to compress.
The goal is just to avoid it coming loose.

it's 12 nM which appears to convert to about 9 foot lbs of torque.... if your torque wrench has nM use that.
Please take a moment to rate this solution thanks

I briefly looked online and did not see any info direct6ly relating to the torque spec of the cover bolts. I would guess around 15 ft lbs.--not too much--the head is aluminium--best way to go is to walk up to the service counter of the VW dealer and ask him to provide that information. You have the car and they built it!
