The best way to test to egr is to fit a blanking plate without the hole,i may be wrong but i believe yours can use this type of blank without causing fault light to come on so could also eliminate to need to renew the egr if that is the cause of the problem.

A split in this

is very common and if it's whooshing, hissing or farting when the turbo spools up, it's odds on favourite.

Like Radnorman states, it's difficult to see the split with out removing the pipe, then bending the pipe makes it grin at you!

The pipe can be seen here in pics 11 and 12, the oily pipe about 55mm wide.

To get to it, follow the guide until pic 11, then reach down the front to undo the bottom jubilee clip (and rip your arm to shreads) then check it (worth following the whole guide and cleaning the EGR out as well)

The ebay link is about the cheapest there is, you can often tape it up and refit it until your new one arrives.

Clean the EGR?
Scrape it out first then brake cleaner or carb cleaner will work, you'll probably need to chip away at it until it's clean, same for the manifold, that'll be no doubt caked as well inside it.

Yours is an earlier EGR with just a vacuum pipe and no sensor or wires? Worth blanking the exhaust feed off on one of these, it won't bother the ECU or put the EML on.

Fairly easy, follow the guide and take your time, plenty of rags, paper towels, some marigolds and your tramps outfit! The gunk is horrid stuff.

In pic 11, you can see the front manifold to EGR bolt, the rear one is a little more difficult to get on straight, those small socket sets with the extension bar are perfect to get on this one.
Take care with both bolts, in and out. The steel bolts go into the alloy of the EGR, not a great mix of metals!
Cross threading, over tightening, snapped and seized bolts aren't that uncommon.
