    generally most egr's are spring loaded shut!, and are opened when needed via an elec solenoid, the egr should be able to be operated by hand fairly easily and smoothly ( but they can be firm to move due to the strength of the spring). cleaning of the egr for your vehicle has a step by step guide in the 'how to section' on this forum.
