    Default EGR removal on cdti 150 again !

    So , ive just taken a look at it with a view to taking it off & cleaning it ..

    ( i have all the symptoms that goes with it )

    After doing a lot of research prior to having a go , along with print outs at the ready ... the EGR i have looks totally different to all in the "how to's " while its on the engine !

    Looking at the EGR from above , electrical connector to the left ... i was under the impression there should be a corrigated pipe to the right , but as my luck usually goes there isnt !
    The pipe goes from the underside of the EGR down , single metal pipe & i cant even see what type of tool i need , pressed my finger against the bolt to see what the head was and it doesnt look like a torx by the dent in my finger ... so i have NO CLUE !

    any info would really be a help as reading up on people who have done this just say " remove the egr" yep .. very simple if you know the correct tools / screws etc required .

    thanks in advance.

    There's 2 (10mm i think) bolts that hold the EGR valve to the pipe. Undo and remove these, then remove the 4 13mm bolts that hold the EGR valve to the inlet manifold. Becareful not to lose the metal gaskets from the manifold side and the bottom side.

    Another check ... no clue still what the bolt heads are ...


    to clarify
    as mentioned i see the 4 bolts (13mm) i can see the pipe underneath the egr (10mm?) but these i have no idea what type they are and they do look to be very awkward to get to !

    any more ?

    thanks

    Or, i may be wrong with the bolt head measurements, but those 6 are the ones to remove.

    Ok .... managed to remove & clean the egr and as i suspected would happen the car no longer starts , so to be honest the way im going now is to replace the egr altogether .. i am led to believe the part number is 55215031 .. is this correct as the one installed to car now has a number : 55194735 !
    the only other number on it was 50024005/ 05T138

    any advice please ?

    55215031 Is the current part number as supplied from the stealers and is correct for your car.

    Sometimes you have to know when to stop flogging a dead horse!!! I'm sure a new one will fix her right up.
