I think the variable intake is the same. Can you take a picture of this part when the engine is off/cold. Then start the engine and check wether this same part is moving when you rev the engine?

This is the change-over barrel actuator. The black piece in this picture.

3.2 Valve cover gasket replacement

I bought a used intake manifold on ebay to play with. This will give me a spare shift rod, a spare pcv and a spare change-over actuator. I also have the shift rod noise problem. So this manifold will be my test/bench part before I fix the one on the car.

Someone sells oversized plastic "bearings" that help tighten up the changeover rod/barrel/thingee. Gruven parts, IIRC? Something like that.

Yes. I will get a pair soon. I thought the issue was my chain but now that the actuator is stuck in a fixed position I don't hear any rattle so I know it's the bushings. I'm learning
