So, i've got the turbo apart, well... the internals are out of the housings - but the compressor turbine will not come off of the shaft for some reason, I am under the impression that it just slides off - am I wrong?

Also, when I took the compressor housing off the turbo, one of the nuts was extremely loose - would this cause white smoke to come out of the exhaust?

no that just clocks the turbo.

I would suggest having a professional rebuild any turbos if you don't really know what you are doing. Especially such small finicky turbos like the k04.

Most people would tell you to just toss the k04 in the trash and find another uses one, or go with a bigger setup that's more reliable.
