    Default Is this an EGR record?

    Had my 06 plate 150 Sri for less than a week (3 days to be precise) and the EML came on and went into limp mode. Restarted the engine and all was well. Sent it back into the dealers under warranty, guess what - EGR valve! They cleaned it out and put one on order - how long are these taking currently? I am driving to France at the end of May so I want it sorted before then.
    Is there any difference between the failing EGR's and the ones they are now replacing them with? The car's only done 22k and I'm worried that the new one will eventually develop the same fault.
    I would like to clean it out periodically - has anyone got a how2?

    Lots of questions I know!

    On the plus side, very pleased with the car. Excellent mix of performance & economy. Currently getting 45mpg out of the first tank and I haven't even been on the motorway yet.

    If you take the engine cover off and look towards the top right hand corner of the engine block, it's there.
    I think it even says egr on it.
