i tired with cam locks off as I saw that in a thread too. well, didn't make a difference. Same thing. I've taken the whole thing apart again and reinstalled. Same problem. Took the vanos apart to check seals and inside. Those all seem fine.

Perhaps my rig for applying air? Should I not have the oil feed line attach? I have an aftermarket oil pressure guage that tees off that, so mine is a bit different. I was able to get a hose clamp attached to that. Air doesn't leak and does go through even with the kink. Other end just connected to the compressor with 60 psi.I do hear air coming out from somewhere under the exhaust cam gear. I assume oil feeds into the head somewhere in there. But air pressure definitely escapes through there.

yeah, this is my bolt going into vanos. I assume I need something that bypasses the oil feed line (that black line?) I was just applying air to the end nipple part with the bolt still screwed in and oil line attached

Possible more air pressure and/or volume (4an is not that big internally).

I ran 80 psi and it worked fine. The instructions say 2 - 8 bar which is 29 to 116 psi.
This how I had the air attached. You won't get any movement without the air properly set up.

You could significantly drill out the hole in the stock vanos bolt if adapting off that.
