Vanos rattle fixed but returned, help!

Hello, okay so I replaced my vanos seals and did the rattle repair kit about 1 month ago, because obviously it was rattling. After being done it was perfect, no rattle at all, all was well but over the past couple of weeks it's getting progressively more rattly and I'm back to square one...
How come it has came back ?

Did you fit and the pistons with the anti rattle ring onto the cams to test for axial play and adjust the rings as needed?

Sometimes the new rings are the right size, sometimes you need to sand back their length a little, especially on the exhaust cam.
