Don't let these guys that go to dealerships for warranty and come back with a $2k bill throw you off. The part is $800 and this can be done in under half a day if you follow my instructions.
I replaced the HALL SENSOR bank 1 first thinking that it might be the problem cause it is the sending sensor to the actuator but the code came back.
Swapped bank 1 & 2 and fault followed so i had my boy ordered the actuator. $800 i got it for,much better than $1050 + tax !

Thanks for the help and great write up Sir !
