    Default North East - indie garage

    Morning everyone,

    Just wanted to say hello and am looking for a bit of help if that's OK.

    I've got a 120bhp Vectra CDTi which has developed the usual EGR fault.
    After reading through quite a few threads I've decided to blank it off rather than replace as there appears to be no major downside and it's not deemed a permanent fix.

    In addition it appears that on the CDTi it can't be totally blanked off but requires a 10mm whole drilling trhough the plate to trick the ECU?

    Not really sure how to do that myself so I'm wondering if anyone knows a local good indie that could do this for me? Or should they all know how to do it? I'm based in the Jarrow area but travel through to Newcastle / Sunderland often..

    Any info appreciated.

    Bump? Going to give Cartec at Vroom a bell tomorrow. Problem I have is the car drives fine so I'm loathe to replace the part when there's no real problem. Flip side of that is from what I've read the partial block will not get rid of the EML light? So I'd need to pay X amuont to get that sorted. Cost of a fitted EGR can't be much more than that. Certainly the parts on ebay come to about £80..
