Good luck with the job, mate.
I haven't done it myself, so can't really comment, but I do have a 2004 model too, so I may face it myself one day...
Let us know how you get on!  Smile

... and grip your wallet very tightly. The turbo stepper motor failed on my 2003 LC4 120 at 110k miles. I had this confirmed by a local independent and a not-so-local main dealer. A new OEM turbo unit was 3,000 and fitting, VaT etc meant the final bill was around 4K. Believe me, I looked hard for alternatives but couldn't find anything.
