Default Turbo actuator `05 BEW

Does anyone know where I could get a wastegate actuator for `05 Jetta TDI with BEW engine?
I do not want to buy the entire turbo if possible. It`s nuts that VW-BorgWarner does not sell that component separate from the entire turbo unit.

Is the actuator not working, or is it throwing a code for the sensor? My brother bought an 04 PD and it took a couple days to get that code to disappear!

Thanks for the tip about the outfit in Colorado. I am now checking with my garage to see how doable this is, and will post the results after we've had a chance to look into it further.

BTW, for anyone looking for a full turbos, there's an outfit in Mass., USA that will sell a brand new B-W for $999.00 or a Garret for $899 - - best Canadian price I could get was $1,400.

Yes, Joe & Robs will be doing the work. They have had one on backorder for some weeks (mayber Roseland, I'm not sure), but I decided to simply order from Kermatdi as I need the car for a road trip next month. The actuator was shipped from Kermatdi in Colorado today; we'll see how long it takes to get here.
I'll post the results with the full price and cost of installation, when it happens.

Parrtown,
I see you have ordered an actuator.
I just saw a complete turbo for sale.

Too bad I hadn't seen your post before I ordered the actuator.

Default Turbo Actuator for '05 BEW

Thanks to this forum I was able to contact Kerma TDI and bought an actuator from them and had it installed at Joe & Rob's in Saint John.
The car now works like new.

Cost of Actuator: $ US 220, including shipping
Labour to install: $300

It took about 2 weeks for the part to be delivered, but it would have been here in 5 days, had I used FEDEX Air and $25 or so more for shipping.

Well satisfied.
