Intake Camshaft Position Sensor Replacement

I'm trying to replace my intake camshaft position sensor. I need to remove the VANOS solenoid in order to access the sensor but am having troubles removing the VANOS solenoid. It seems pretty tight. I tried some Bolt Off and am using an adjustable wrench. Does anyone have any advice?

I finally got it removed. I took out the oil filter housing to get some more room/better leverage.
