Thanks. That was my guess. But apparently dealer just keep a look and no torque check !!!!
I was following this post as well as i got first check done recently and was surprised that nuts were untouched ...
Chris I sent you a message.
The gasket compresses, effectively leaving the bolts loose and the gasket un clamped.
You need to remedy this situation, otherwise you run a very real risk of blowing the head gasket.
1st service also includes rocker inspection too. Easy to do while the valve cover is off.
Thank you for your feedback. I will revert to my dealer and keep you updated.
Can anyone post a copy of the paper version?

Thanks so much.
I have more Q's
1) Where/How does one apply the "Extreme Pressure Lube"
2) Is the Head Cover Gasket reusable?
1 - This is fastener assembly lube, you can get it online.
2 - Mine was reusable, but I wouldn't reuse it more that once.
With regards to the "How" , Do you remove the fastener completely, coat in lube and torque as recommended?
Only asking as I've never used this before
If I were rebuilding the engine and replacing the head I would cover the bolt threads with a light coating.
But if just re-torquing the head, I wouldn't bother.
The fastener lube is designed to eliminate friction between the bolt threads so that the correct tension can be reached in the threads to achieve an accurate final torque.
Gotcha ,Thanks !
Do you have the workshop manual?
I have a downloaded version. It says
"Tighten head and barrel bolts in sequence from one to twenty to torques detailed below (shown in detail in this chapter, section: 4.7.7)
Torque: Barrel Bolts – 25Nm
Torque: Head Bolts – 30Nm / 60Nm (Refer to 4.7.7)
Cylinder Head Bolts"
But my downloaded version doesn't have a section 4.7.7 for some reason
Check section 5.7 onwards, that seems to have the diagrams
