    How difficult is it to fit actuator...

    Hello all,

    Got to fit a new actuator but don't know anyone local that I can trust, , so, how difficult is it to fit? The plan is to get a multivac to set the break off pressure, is there a how-to guide, ?

    cheers

    easy. undo one small pipe clip , undo the nuts on the threaded bar end (10mm i believe) and undo the 2 small bolts (10mm i believe)that hold it to the turbo...pull away..

    So, there is no need to remove heatshield and other bits? Cheers.

    no ,not just to swap the actuator..you will have to undo the bottom bolt holding the actuator to the turbo from underneath the car...the rest from the top..
