Take it to a shop and save the headaches. Other wise you need a few special tools. Which are worth more than labor at a shop.

^ You can get the vanos tools on ebay for less than $150 shipped. This includes the cam locking blocks, flywheel pin, and cam gear turning tool. I don't even want to think what a shop would charge for that job.

Ebay item: 170598740809
