EGR Cleaner

I have read this thread with interest and have had the same symptons on my Tourer. Having had various diesels and cleaned the EGR valves with carb and brake cleaner, I spoke to a mate who's an independent mechanic and he told me they use a product made by Wynns specifically to clean the EGR valve and he was quite surprised to find out I had used other products as the valve is silicon lined to improve smooth airflow and these other cleaners remove this lining.
I will be cleaning mine shortly with this cleaner and will post up my results to let you know if it works.
