08 2.0T VANOS issue

Bought an 08 with a "bad motor". I was told the timing belt had broken then replaced. When it wouldnt run they pulled the cover off the vanos and found 4 broken teeth. When I pulled it apart the vanos chain and guide is gone so I have no way to know what they looked like. I pulled the head and found no damage to any of the valves or the pistons. Has anyone seen a VANOS guide/chain fail? A failed timing belt should have wiped out the valve train correct? Thanks in advance.
