    Angry Waste gate problem!! Please Help!

    Just found out that the bottom nut on the actuator rod wasn't there! Got a new 10mm nut but can't close the waste gate to put it through the rod! Has any1 got any idea on how to move it, didn't want to 2 much force on it just in case i broke it. it's only just happened.

    a hammer is always the answer!!!

    if a hammer wont fix it then its got to be an electrical problem!!!!

    Be very careful hitting it with a hammer, i know it has worked this time but i have snaped a wastegate shaft by giving it a gentle tap like this ! Resulted in a new turbo ( uprated to a vxr, silver linings and all that ). I would always advise to drop the down pipe off and sort it from the inside !
