    Actuator Preload

    I would expect the actuator to hold boost of the actuator rating(ish).. Maybe not enough preload, or of course the boost gauge could be reading incorrectly, Cross reference to vagcom would prove that though... Someone will correct me now!

    K- nuts - Slimline and strong locking nuts.

    For wire locking:- Get one of these to drill a small hole across flats. Then you can make as many wire lockable nuts/bolts as you like, High Tensile and all (with quality drill bits) Worked for me where Nords failed, perfect
