Which solenoid valves do you need to changes out (driver side or passenger side). You will need to disconnect the radiator hoses and fan shroud. You can replace the solenoid valves without having to remove the vanos unit itself but it is a much easier job if you do. If you leave the vanos unit in place, it can a pain to get to the two bolts that held the solenoid in place. The solenoid valves can be snug tight and will take a little force to pull them out.

I would put a clean pail under the radiator drain and drain all that comes out. The level will then be low enough for you to remove the hoses on top without it all spilling. Every other oil change I just drain what come out of the radiator anyway and restore with new. The BMW coolant is cheap and it gets cycled that way.

Yes coolant will come out so you will need to get some coolant prior to doing this job. Depend on the hoses condition, now is the time to replace them if need be. I replaced all 4 hoses as a preventive maintenance. If you decided to replace the solenoids in place, you will need a flex extension. Also, don't forget to label the connecting plugs as you don't want to miss match them. One for the inlet and one for the outlet.
