X5: After a valve cover gasket replacement on a 2005 N62 engine

This answer was rated:

After a valve cover gasket replacement on a 2005 N62 engine will the valvetronic motors adjust automatically or is there a procedure that needs to be performed to adjust them manually?
Hi, my name isXXXXX removing and installing the valvetronic motors you should just turn the key to the on position without starting the car. You should hear the motors should run through an adaption process. The adaption should run in less than a minute. After the adaption has run just turn the key off and start the car and you should be fine.
