The Vanos bearings are a separate issue to the seals. Go to the Beisan website. On the Procedures, they explain how to replace the bearings. A very good DIY. Your symptoms are classic bearing symptoms, where you get the rattle on a cold start but it goes away as the car warms up. Too bad you didn't do it the first time you replaced the seals. But at least this time, it will be a lot easier!
