VarioCam Actuator

Recommended Posts

I'm replacing this actuator because it's throwing a code.  Looks like the current part number is 996.105.303.06  (old one was a .02).




Once it was removed from the car and as I was wiping the off the oil that was coming out , I realized the coupler was turning relative to the body of the actuator.  Not sure if it's supposed or not (as I have yet to get the replacement actuator) but now I've inadvertently lost my reference for re-installation orientation.   There is this notch to indicate position.  I think it goes at the 12 o'clock position and I'm just looking for confirmation.   Anyone have that detail?

New part does not rotate at the coupler so it ended up being a non issue.  

Clip faces down and complete level. 

You can see the dowel at the roughly 11 oclock position.
