Do you have a torque wrench? Not a lot of tightening is called for in that area.
The said clamping screws that you damaged are only 21Nm and while locktite is called for by BMW I have never used it.
The axle bolt is 30Nm which again is not much. To put it in perspective, the rear wheel studs are tightened to 105Nm which is considerably less than most tire fitters would fit a car wheel stud with an air driver.
