M3 S52 Cam Timing

I am having trouble getting the (Cam timing) right for my 98 M3 After replacing the head gasket. I have followed all the directions in the Bently Manual, but there is still a Code. (P1519 'A' camshaft position actuator bank 1) Coming up. I think that it is the cam timing. Can Anybody help me out with this.

I have also heard that if you get a magnet near the cam sensor it will not work properly (Throw a code). Is this true. I has a magnet near, if not touching the cam sensor because I dropped a nut and a magnet was the only way to pick it up.

If you have a fax I can send you the correct BMW Procedure. If you are near my area you can pick up the documents.

There is a specific way of adjusting the vanos unit on the M/S52 lump.

905-686-2700.

MANDD could you please fax me to instlation of the cams right from step 1 from putting the chain on the primary cam sprocket on the exhaust cam and where it goes on the cam. I think it goes to the left of the threaded holes, but I'm not sure, that is what the bentley manual says but there is still a code comming up.
Thanks

Send a message via MSN to propr'one
1519 is also the code the ecu would throw if your vanos is jamming (seals worn out)
