Vanos Removal and Install question DIY

Are there instructions posted on the removal and install?

I have everything thing ready to come off?

Do I need to set the timing or mark positions of the flywheel or cam?

It is really tought coming off. I just unbolt all the 10mm and the 13 or 14mm by the thermostat housing. I thought the whole thing would slide out, but it seem like the gears are really tight in the cams.

You have to remove the hex head caps from the center, reach in and pull out the plastic caps in the middle of each gear and unscrew the hex head bolts that's underneath the plastic caps. Read carefully.
