I got to it this weekend with fitting the new forge actuator. Bit of a pain in the **** but a few banjo bolts out made things easier.
First off I removed all the obstructions, scuttle panel, crossover and heat sheild.
A bit of wiggling around and it was out.
Unfortunately the rubber hose that goes between the actuator and boost solenoid broke while I was trying to get it off the actuator leaving it about an inch to short.
Nowhere local has any 4mm vacuum hose, Halfords only had 3mm and 5mm so I've had to resort to Amazon in the hope it will be here sometime today.
Anyway I carried on fitting the new actuator and setting the pre load. I didn't get any pictures of this as I was already annoyed due to the hose breaking.
Well I was hoping to get this done during the week but bad weather and being too busy meant it was pushed back until today.
Jacked the st up and took the arch liner off to get better access to the boost solenoid and fit the new length of vacuum hose.
While I was messing about I gave the crossover another try, I've bought several different angled silicone hoses and finally got it to fit. Unfortunately when I came to fit the MAF harness 2 of the wires fell out.
Thankfully I have a set of wiring terminal keys so managed to remove the rest of the wires and re pin the connection.
