I don't see myself as a guru, but I've done both things, so here goes..
I replaced the cables without removing either the exhaust or the shaft, but it
was somewhat fiddly. Guess it's practical with small hands sometimes. The big
job is actually getting out the clip in the front, so better buy a new one
before you start, so you know what it looks like.
The stud on teh turbo was no problem, had to change position about 100 times
to remove it, but I didn't use a custom tool. The writeup says to use the
'u'-bent spanners, but then again, it says that bolt is of a different size..
Mine wasn't, it just had a washer.
