I am currently in this predicament. I have everything disassembled, but cannot release the terminal pins as only this special tool seems to fit. (I was hoping that a regular pin removal tool would work, the three slits were unexpected).

All options at this point seem to involve shipping from Germany via either Burkhart or their possible supplier, TGS (shop.t-g-s.de, part # R775).

Any help or other options would be appreciated.
That's a great idea and I am shocked that nobody is currently offering this.
I know it sure was a HUGE help for VANOS.

When I first contacted Burkhart about getting the kit and tool last week, they told me Blunttech.com was a US reseller option. I ended up going through Blunttech and had a great experience. They were able to get the tool and kit to me in CA within 2 days.

When I got mine, the tool couldn't be found on their site through a search since they were doing some maintenance at the time. Here's the direct link they sent me:

when you changed the oil for the 2nd time did you get any blinking cog light during heavy traffic?

Sorry for the slow reply. The new oil drastically reduced the cog lights but on extremely hot days with a lot of traffic, it can still illuminate. With that said, I don't have near the neutral drops that I originally had before doing the kit. I think only one or two in the past two years in total whereas it used to be almost every single day. I suspect that if I flushed the system the proper way, instead of just doing what is in the reservoir, then they would likely be gone forever. Maybe it's time to finally get the software that would allow me to do this?

Also,

I have 22k miles on this pump now and it has been great. Before I did this fix, I was always afraid to take the car out of town because I didn't quite trust it and didn't want to end up stranded. Now I have a lot more confidence in the car and have even taken it on a few road trips
