    Default 1.8xe EGR

    This is related to this but I am after information about my EGR

    http://www.vectra-c.com/forum/showthread.php?t=141745

    1.8xe. I am cleaning stuff to eliminate possibilities before I start to buy sensors. Emission light is on.

    I have taken the top half (which I am assuming is the solenoid) off - although not particularly grubby I have washed it out with carb cleaner and I have now left it full of WD40. I have read the 1.9 dti how2, but it is completely different.

    How easy should it be to move the centre i.e. what looks like a piston, because I cannot move it!

    Its not normally ment to be movable by hand, i think it can be bench tested with 12v but I'm not sure which pins. Only the canister like section comes off. The 1.8 creates very little soot in the egr, even over long periods.
