I would suggest that the EGR valve is cleaned along with the service of around 8K miles. Taking it to a dealer for the clean is not recommended as they only upsell and tell you that the EGR valve needs repalcing. Mine was cleaned in about an hour and looked new. I think it was cleaned in brake cleaners. Most of the time was taken up trying to remove the damn thing from the engine.

As for the clicking aircon, mine has always done it, and that's what lead me on a fault finding mission when it was cold and didn't click anymore. I'm not sure if it's surposed to come on when it's cold or if it's a glitch somewhere. Personally, I think it should come on what ever the temp, the windows do steam up when it's cold and it takes ages to de-mist because the aircon dont kick in.
