    Very easy on a ko4-02x, you have the 2 10mm nuts on the threaded bar part (remove the outer nut) and 2 10mm bolts holding the actuator bracket to the compressor housing. That's it.

    Remove the upper charge pipe and it all becomes self explanatory.

    Ko3 actuator swaps are a pita, think yourself lucky! :)

    Top bloke, Cheer's Benjamin, that's the answer I was looking for :). I've got an old picture of another k04 I used have and can see the 2x10mm bolt you mean, just wasn't sure they were very accessible in situ.

    I found it a little pain tbh. Take the strut brace off, TIP etc for better clearance.
