    Default 2.2 dti egr valve

    so my egr valve is messed up and its throwing the spanner light on straight away, whats my options, buy a new one or a second hand one if i can find one, or is there anything else i can do blanking etc? or rip the insides out and leave it open all the time?

    no bob i havent got anything to read the codes and money is serious tight, sapposed to be moving house in 2 weeks also. but me and the girlfriends father had taken of the egr to have a closer inspection and when we put it back on, i had a constant spanner light, it takes about 15seconds sometimes for it to light up, cant drive it on limp mode, also i took of the side of the plastic on the egr to see if it was moving while connected and it didnt. have gotten a few qoutes over here and its 235 sterling. ill have to save for it. so you cant blank it etc? or bridge connections or anything?

    did some serious cleaning to it man, but the car is down on power since my sister owned it, she had it for 2 years, and how it finally gave in is, we took it apart to see if any internal damage, but when the womans father put it back together he bent the 2 prongs downwords so it didnt connect and i had spanner light all the way home, then i decided to futher investigate and seen the prongs werent connected, so i reconnected and it still the same, i reckon its gotten some electrical damage and it isint turning anymore, this could finnaly put the car right. id say it had an intermidate problem before when my sister owned it.
