You can use ISTA. Click on the DME on the chart of all the modules. Then one of the buttons below will give you the component tests. There should be a VANOS one. The Solenoids can be tested there.

Personally, I don't believe in that test given what people have reported for new solenoids and how the test results fall rapidly to fail. Either replace them or don't.
