V10 TDI turbo actuator cross compatibility
Trying to figure out what turbo actuators will work with my 2004 Touareg V10 TDI engine code BKW.
Bought it thinking it may need the engine pulled for new turbos due to codes and no boost. Found bank 2/left side actuator unplugged, plugged it in and now i have half boost. Bank 1/right side sets a turbo controller missing messages code, and produces no boost on that side. I took the actuator apart, looks good inside, and the motor spins easily if i apply 12v to it. Plugged it into the left side, and it still won't work. So I'm certain the controller is dead and it's not a wiring issue.
Now I'm on the hunt for a replacement bank1/right side actuator. As I understand it, they must be coded as left or right (bank 1 or bank 2). On my bank 2/left actuator (working side), the numbers are 730314 6nw-009-228, yet on the bank 1/right actuator (non-working side) its 712120 6nw-008-412 G145.
My question is, what actuators will work for my bank 1/right side? does the Garrett number matter, as long as its coded for a V10 TDI bank 1/right side? Could I use a 730314 on the right side as long as its coded for right side?
