Exclamation Renault clio 1.5 DCI suspected fuel pump fail, injectors? Lack of power? black smoke?

Hi guys my renault clio 2004 1.5 is very poorly.
Symptoms: Very lumpy tick over, Heavy black smoke, Lack of power, misfiring ect.

Basically it has the kind of symptoms that would point to the ERG, i gave the egr a real good polish and cleaned out all the gunk! this makes a difference for about a second when you start it then its back to lumpy tick over.... But im pretty sure its not that, although when you disconnect the egr it runs a bit better as with the plug from the air box. I brought the car as a project because i was told the fuel pump failed sending metal to the injectors. I opened the tank and found loads of tiny tiny bits of metal!!!!

Any ideas where to start what to do? Price's ? (please bear in mind my dad is a mechanic so i can do all the labour work.)
Ps i have just brought a new fuel filter to see if there are many bits of metal in there, i will cut open the old one tomorrow!
Any one point me to previous similar problems?
Thanks a lot for your time!
