Vanos rebuild

What is involved with a vanos rebuild? It is just the seals kit and the oil pump disc to rebuild correct?

1) Absolutely replace all the bolts and nuts at the same time. They are cheap enough. There is no excuse not to. (This includes all bolts and stand-offs associated with the valve cover gasket.)

2) You better have a low torque accurate torque wrench, something that is good between 6 and 30 NM.
