    Default New EGR valve £305 fitted!!!! 1.9CDTi

    How ****** much

    Mine has come in to vxl dealer,they had 16 come in,one with my name on it.
    Last week I got new gaskets and took it off and cleaned it out as was mentioned on here.Mine didn`t need totally diassembling as the solanoid moved a ok.So carb cleaner on the valve it self to remove as much crud as possible.Since then even the wife thinks the car has more get up and go.
    I have only had code p0400 once which is EGR valve - so hence a new one was ordered.Still have no fault lights on.
    The chap I spoke to at dealership was still not sure if it was new redeigned version.
    But I have been told so many different stories in whether it needs tech 2ing to my car.He said yes needs reprogramming to my car.

    So can anyone tell please the part no` for the redeigned EGR valve if it is different AND does it need tech 2ing to my car.Or I have been led up the garden path.

    I`m really considering getting rid of my ticking timebomb for a 2.0t estate I`ve found.

    About 3 weeks ago I cleaned my EGR valve in the same way as you.. i.e. without removing solenoid as that felt fine. Car has felt much perkier since. Then a week later the spanner light came back on. Then the next morning it was off again and has not been on since!

    Alledgedly, The redesigned valve is still not available & the Egr valves that you are receiving are re-worked ones, new internals, Cleaned Body Etc as all the Egr's taken off & swapped Etc are a returnable part..

    Can you not fit it yourself ?? They are a Piece of P!$$ to fit ..

    Yes I want to (and have taken it off to clean but think it`s just too dirty,could of been done with doing a year ago.Still not super clean after can of cleaner.Will if get a new one take it off every 6 months and clean it).
    But it`s THE FACT that the dealers have said about a tech 2 reprogramme.I have said I`ll have it off them and if I fit it,then get it tech 2`d.
    But I`m desperate to know hard facts on whether the new valves are out and do they need tech 2ing.
    Dealer had 16 come in,another dealer had 4 come in.

    I think the tech 2'ing is to reduce the amount of travel/time the egr opens & for it to perform & quick open & close routine to aid self cleaning , It does P!$s you off, Why couldn't they just do that, You fit, They Tech.. It would make for far batter customer/garage relations & they would see people far more often with that kind of service ..
