so its not likely to be the solenoid valves at all and more likely the actuator? or a pair of actuators?

the problem was an intermittant loss of power or function friom the small turbo similar to the linked post but then the other day i had total loss of power

bearing in mind there are 3 actuators on the for each turbo and one for the changeover flap

as im getting a dtc though does this not point more to an electrical fault as oppoised to a mechanical fault?

the actuators look like they will be a very awkward job to remove

is there anyway of testing the solenoid valves and the actuators whilst on the car?

gettin a bit peeved off with it now to say the least haha
