Stephan could help but I don't he is RMI approved, so Vag Cpec Centre is probably your best bet.

a) you do not get the actuator loose. So unless you have sourced one that is known to be alive form a crashed car you cannot just buy one new and fit.
b) if you buy a turbo new to get the actuator it is advised to swop both sides because it is an engine out job to change.

if you are looking for an RMI workshop because you think that guarantees quality of work you are in for a rude awakening.
Not many places can and will take the engine out of a touareg or has the tools to do it.
But yeah I am not and will never bother with RMI.
