the DIY was fairly easy for me. took me about 15mins total. I had to make another extension to be able to reach the T40 bolts (also taped so they don't come apart). I also had to disconnect the intake tube and push it down so I can get at the 2nd bolt and remove the DISA. Part was a little expensive ($183 with shipping from Tischer) but to think what could have happened if the pin worked itself loose and into the engine.... Well, like I said, I saved money (and potentially the engine)

see above.
Apart from the rattling noise what other problems was you having?
reason why I ask is im having problems with mine and trying to find out what is wrong
