01 – 357 viewsDiscussion around the benefits of disabling your EGR or replacing it with a blanking kit can be found on the forum. This show is about removing, cleaning and replacing the existing EGR

The EGR valve is located under the front engine cover, so you will need to remove it. There are three allen bolts and you need to remove the power steering lid to remove it.

05 – 420 viewsFront engine cover removed. You can see that the EGR is still obscured by the top engine cover. This is only held on by one allen bolt at the back, so you should be able to simply lift up the front of the top cover and swing it out of the way.

09 – 498 viewsUndo the four bolts (10mm) holding on the EGR. This is a bit fiddly with the bottom bolts, but the right combination of sockets will help you. Take care when removing the bolts you don't loose them down into the engine bay. You can now remove the EGR and see all the muck in side.
