Your main worry is if the turbo seals have gone and are letting oil through to the engine. How much oil is it getting through?

On the 1.9 the EGR is at the back of the engine. Remove the plastic engine cover to get a good look - there should be loads of pics on the forum if you search.

Edit: here you go:-

To remove the egr use some penetrating oil like plusgas and a punch. Having undone the 3 bolts give it a knock with the punch on the corner then more penetrating oil . Eventually you'll get some movement and it can be wiggled free then out with a schlopp Be careful to take it slowly or it can break in two. Clean with carb cleaner. Also clean the channel it fits in and refit with copper grease to make removal easier next time.
