    Default EGR Stuck on!

    I attempted cleaning the EGR valve at the weekend (2003 2.2Dti), but the thing weren't budging
    Bolts and pipes came off fine as in the "how to" but I could not seperate the EGR from whatever its attached to. I even gave it a pasting with a mallet and a crow bar, but nothing.

    Any ideas?

    Would trying it with a warm engine make any difference?

    You could not of hit it hard enough it only sits on a lip of 5mm so should be fairly easy to prise off

    The casting of the EGR has dents in it where i've attempted it.
    I daren' t hit it any harder, something would have cracked.

    Yeah i tried this aswell.
    I swear someones welded mine on!!
    Once the bolts are undone, is the EGR free to spin? What I mean is i know it needs to pull out but can i twist it aswell?

    Spin is an exaggeration, I think something gets in the way, but it does twist a bit.

    old pan, 50% antifreeze mix, with water of course, let simmer for a couple of hours. works great on model aero engines that have seized.might even dissolve the carbon as well,give it a go.
