Was finally able to remove the vanos unit (the whole unit with splines) , i was able to loosen the 3 hubolts and then i could but the exhaust camshaft to it's initial postion
Just order the S62 Vanos seal repair kit , and Rattle kit from Beisan along with all new solenoid O-rings , hoping that can solve my problem , either way it's gonna be a calm of mind knowing that everything in the vanos department is 100 % , doing valve cover gasket and changing the 2 intake cps aswell since i already renewed the exhaust earlier
I'm thinking the problem is somewhere in the spring plates (as described in the thread i noted before)
But one think , while i did the vanos removal with locking cams etc , i only focused on bank 1 and didn't even open the bank 2 , but now i'm obviously gonna be removing the vanos bank 2 unit to upgrade the plates.
How do i go about this when i have locked the bank 1 cams ?
Must i remove the cam locking pins and turn the engine to TDC overlap , loosen the 3 hubolts on bank 2, turn it to TDC ign , lock both cam on bank 1 & 2 , then go on and loosening the rest of the bolts and removing bank 2 unit?
