    Default stripping an egr valve

    has anyone actually fully stripped the dti egr valve down to see exactly whats wrong with it.

    mines going tits up and id love to strip and at least give the insides a clean to see if i can get anymore mileage out of it but iv never seen one done.

    so, if anyones done it or knows of any thats been done, id like to have look !

    cheers

    All I know that on mine it doesn't need to be stripped its a simple prob the spring bit that is exposed is stiff and cant be oppend by the solenoid when I fist take it out after its causing probs I can barely press it in with my finger after I clean it its smooth.

    Oh just seen yours is different to mine completely.
