    EGR Removal and Cleaned (with photos)

    Hi well i finally cleaned my EGR it today (pat myself on the back)

    heres a step by step with photos ........

    first of all you will need lots of these ......


    remove engine cover


    the EGR is located bottom left of the photo next to the air box


    heres a closer look at the EGR


    first thing to do is to remove the air box, so i removed the air flow tube (mine have tap screws to hold them in place) your should clip off


    then i unplugged the 2 connectors plugs on the air box


    then unplugged the MAF plug


    once all unplugged you can lift the box up (with a little tug)


    then once thats out of your way your able to get to the nut underneath (i used this spanner) (size 10)


    i made up a tool to get to the top bolt of the ERG witch is on the top far side lol


    i used a small screw driver to get to the ring tie


    i just pulled the little rubber tube off the EGR the pulled it out



    heres what i found .......







    i used some brake cleaner spray which done a good job and old cloths





    its getting cleaner ......






    then i put it back on (dont forget to put the rubber tube back on)


    the replaced the air box and connected all the plugs back on


    JOB DONE

    it took no longer then an hour and im a complete novice

    Good guide! I'll be giving mine a go within the next few weeks. It's not running too badly, though a little sluggish to start when hot. My main problem is my mpg average is quite low. I can manage 45-46mpg driven carefully on the motorway, when others can get over 50.

    It's done 124000 miles (I've not had it long)
    I have not drove it properly since I done it, only up the road and back, I mainly done it to see if it improved my mpg as it was running ok (as far as I'm aware) I'll keep you informed on how she goes

    If this is inside of your engine, just think what is inside of you

    I'd really think about cleaning the inlet manifold as well, mine was really coked up when I took my egr off and its an easy job once the egr is off.
