The only problem with doing this is that only one of the bolt holes lines up, but if you place a washer on one of the other bolt holes it presses on the edge of the body of the ERG valve to help hold it in place. (2 bolts in position)

My valve has been like this for a couple of years now with no problems and no warning lights, and no reduced MPG like you get when simply unplugging the valve !


Cheers.
i did the same on my 1.5dci but was able to line up 2 bolts by enlarging one hole on the egr valve

Re: Quick dci egr blanking question

Thank you everyone for the help. I might try spinning it around 180 then to see if that works! So it doesn't line up perfectly when rotated?

The valve is already in 2 parts. Spin the inner, ported part a half turn so that one bolt locates. Bolt the outer electrical part with the 3 bolts as normal. The EGR will continue to function but exhaust gases are cut off.

I didn't think of doing it that way....I turned the whole valve.

Just turning the inner part as you describe is a better idea



Cheers.

Re: Quick dci egr blanking question

Ok i have this done now. The inner section was a bit stubborn to remove but got it out eventually. I turned it 180 degrees and lined it up with one hole. I turned the outer part the same to line it up with the inner sections holes(is this right) but was only able to fit one bolt as the manifold they fit on was was blocking half of the other 2 holes. Hopefully I've made myself clear enough lol.

Car does feel a little smoother but haven't taken it much more than a few miles so any other benefits remain to be seen.
