Pure Turbos sells an N55 wastegate actuator so I'll buy one and take it to a shop to replace it since taking off the DP (xdrive) is also too much for me. I e replaced actuators on a 03 Jetta TDI but BMW left very little working space.
Yes they did. I am X-drive. It may suck to pull the DP, but you'll thank yourself, as you'll be cussing when you pull it off as opposed to cussing while you're working on the compressor.
