E34 Vanos solenoid replacement procedure

Hey all, I have a 1995 525i/E34--93K miles.

I have an intermittent check engine light error 1266--this is for VANOS---and the next step is to check VANOS solenoid connections and operation.

Does anyone have photos of VANOS location---and/or steps to remove VANOS solenoid and test/replace?

Supposed to be easy...5 minute job...but...ya know

Thanks to all.
