Re: Renault Laguna II 1.9Dci - Engines - Hesitation Cured after EGR cleaned
Thank you for the advice. I applied both WD-40 and now carb cleaner, plus some 'encouragement' from a screwdriver blade and managed to persuade it to come free, eventually. It would be helpful if the Haynes manual warned you of some of the problems you might encounter with jobs like this one. After cleaning I refitted it, not expecting much of an improvement. However, a test drive revealed that the hesitation is no more and it appears to accelerate smoother than ever. I'm pleased. Thanks, Renault forum.
