    This is what you want
    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/GENUINE-VAUXHA...item2eb572b833

    That's if your talking 1.9 150 engine, not sure about the 120 engine.

    There is a link to how you remove the EGR with good pics, but was never made into an "how too", well at least I can't find it.

    Dead easy though, remove 4 long bolts that fasten it to the inlet manifold, and 2 bolts that fasten to the exhaust link pipe underneath.
    Don't pull it away yet as there is a electrical connector block to remove. I found it easier to disconnect this last as it's a bit fiddly to get at below. Slide yellow clip out, not all the way out though and ease apart the connector.
    You will see what wants cleaning and whether the piston and spring are seized. You can get the section apart (would have helped if I could have found the thread on this, somebody?)
    Good idea to remove and clean the throttle body as well. I used petrol to clean both parts, soaked the EGR in it overnight. Or use carb cleaner.

    BTW watch out when removing the parts as those gaskets have a mind of there own and disappear down into the depths of the engine compartment, never to be seen again. Not so bad if you're fitting fresh one's though.

    Oh and once done use this http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/wynns-egr3-air...item2302ed7024 to clean your inlet manifold.
    I just sprayed mine into directly into the manifold via the throttle body in short bursts, after cleaning it and the EGR.
