You have to drill the guys out... then replace the actuator with bolts and nuts... its the only way to do it... its the same way the dealer does it.

thanks for the help, its probably easier to drill them out anyway as access to the rear of the fittings is very limited

Very true... now all you got to do is find a bolt that will fit her... which isnt hard to do... I cant remember the exact size... but... a little ruler will do the trick...

Good Luck,
