    Error codes - replace EGR?

    Hi all,

    First time poster.

    I drive a 2008 (5 Jaguar XF 2.7D (Reg. KY58VPG) it has about 110,000 miles on the clock and the only big repair she has ever required has been an alternator replacement at approx. 100,000 miles.

    She's been going in limp mode (the orange alternating messages of "Restricted performance" and "DSC unavailable") every single time I drive her and everytime I read the fault codes its always either:

    P045C - Exhaust gas recirculation "B" control circuit - low, or,
    P045D - Exhaust gas recirculation "B" control circuit - high.

    It's never been anything else or any other codes.

    So I think this means I have to replace the EGR valves? Since they are both only £100 off eBay for the pair I don't mind fitting both sides at the same time and devoting a Sunday to it. Is this the right repair or am I pissing into the wind? If it is right then what else should I be fixing at the same time for maintenance sake since I will have access to both sides of the engine anyway, I don't mind if the part is relatively inexpensive.

    I need this old girl to get me until August 2021 as that is when my mortgage gets paid off and I've already promised myself either a Tesla or a Maseratti Ghibli in advance. I just need her to last till then.

    Thanks in advance.

    - Ryan
