Yes, seen that thanks. Spent many happy hours reading through anything I can find about this, including turning it round so it don't operate! Give that a miss I think. Some good info on here with plenty of pics, a real useful site. Had this car about 9 months and tho it's got full service history I'll make a bet that the egr
has never been taken out before or certainly not for a long while and will be a right sod to get out - that's the way my luck goes! Even thought about buying a new one off ebay
if I can find one so I can have a clean spare ready next time (and just in case I bugger my old one up while cleaning or it turns out to be faulty). Lot of dosh just before Christmas though.
