    Default Boost sensor clean up problem.

    I've been looking at the boost sensor clean up HOW 2 on here, very handy. But........on my 1.9CDTi 120 the EGR fowls the back of the sensor and means I have no room at all to get a torx driver in to remove the sensor. So, is it safe to remove the EGR and leave it hanging from the pipework to give me enough room to access the sensor?

    You can remove the EGR/engine hist bolts (3 of them, and move the EGR out of the way to gain a bit more access.

    Cheers, if I'm playing with the EGR too is there anything to do to it whilst I'm in there anyway?
