Have a 2011 328i in the shop. Runs and idles fine -45

Customer Question

Have a 2011 328i in the shop. Runs and idles fine for 30-45 minutes before it starts running rough starts squealing very loudly and throws a p0012 code plus a code for the Vanos solenoids. Replaced Cam sensor and both vans solenoids. Same thing, after 30-45 minutes it idles rough and squeals. Using a stethoscope the sound is definitely coming from behind the vanos. Before we start tearing down I wanted to see if there were any ideas on this?

Um thanks for not reading my question at all? 1. If you ready my question you'd know we already did that. 2. If you read my question you'd know we figured it out yesterday and asked this question to be cancelled.
