Talking Vibrating noise Laguna 1.9dci

I've recently changed the Air Mass Meter and that didn't work. It's also smoking like Bob and caning the diesel.
Where is the egr and how do you get it off and how do you clean it?
best regards
The vibrating noise may be the upper engine mounting which is located at the drivers side. Mine has gone but I've not replaced it yet. The vibration is when the engine is under load and because the rubber mount has failed you are hearing metal to metal contact. It's only held on by two bolts but costs around 90. Hope this helps
