    2 bolts and lift it out mate, just give it a general clean, fit a Vx blanking plate but keep the wiring attached and never worry about it again. The ECU still can see the EGR so all's well. Blanking plate costs about £5. Re the chain, PM Benny on SE, cant tell you how much he charges but it will be far cheaper than VX and possible most independents. He only used latest VX parts and is a VX mechanic to boot.

    If the EGR just need a clean then you will be fine. If the EGR is faulty then buy the EGR Cheater from the Z22SE shop and totally get rid of the EGR.

    Just unbolt it, and get a tooth brush in there with some carb cleaner. Nothing to it really mate.

    As Rushy says mate , I've done it to mine, in fact taken off the egr altogether (cleaned up and sitting in the shed!!), blanked off and fitted the cheater, as you'll need this to stop any fault codes being thrown up, if you decided to blank off etc that is.
    Cheers Pete
