    Default strange pipe

    hi guys i was cleaning my egr today and noticed this-


    it seems to connect to like the metal pipe on/near the intercooler pipe?
    any ideas?


    btw my egr was desgusting! but i couldnt knock out the cyclinder thing after drilling the 3mm hole, so after many attempts i just put a fair bit of cleaner inside and pushed the pin alot and it started flowing gunk out, i done this untill it wasnt anything much atall.

    Yeah, very annoying as its the one that stops you lifting it out and is a bi*ch to put back on - it looks just like that one.

    Its a breather pipe...

    I have just taken a couple of pics of the one I mean.....




    The other end kind of has two ends, if you know what I mean, one that connects to one of the radiator hoses, and the (very short) other blanks off (you can see the blanked off end on the 2nd picture, towards the top left.

    Not the best pictures I admit, but its the same shape etc as yours. So it looks like being the one. Mine isn't connected as I have an induction kit and have no problems.
