Sure I would love one.

What is the problem, though ?
when you have the engine off, but the key turned, can you hear the actuator move (ie. is there clonking ?)
When you open the drivers door, can you hear a pump whirl ?
Is there fluid in the Selespeed oil container (small container at the very left, about halfway down in the engine bay that has a pipe at the top)

Are you able to connect the car to a laptop to see what errors appear ?

does the selespeed pump make a noise when the door opens? Chances are it's the pump or the accumulator. Both doable in an hour.
