Is that the cover you're trying to get off? I took my kkk apart and cleaned it recently. It has a ring of small bolts round the edge at each end. Just unbolt them, clean the vanes, clean the waste gate and stick it back together. Pay attention to the direction of the exhaust joints for the down pipe and manifold so that it all lines when you put it back on.

Can you take a picture? It would help identify the bolts. Or are you saying there are no bolts? Take some pictures anyways and it would help show if there are any seams.

Aha, I always thought it was the garret had the variable vanes and the kkk had the waste gate. That's another bit of knowledge gained. Cool.

looks like the rest of assembly cant be disassembled, i think its pressed in the manifold.
clean everything with steel brush, blow it with compressed air.
move all the vanes around 360deg they should move easily without sticking.
clean little hole with small drill bit, pic 3 previous post, in the lower left part of the picture.
assemble everything back in order it was removed. now vnt moves nice and easy.
