D40 EGR blank

Hi all, I was reading an older post about blocking off the EGR valve and just wanted to ask if doing so will it cause any lights on the dash to come in? Previous cars I have had needed to either still have small holes in the plate to reduce the flow or have the ECU programmed.

After 2010 a hole will need to be drilled

Garage
Does anyone know which transducer tells the ECU that there is an issue, or no flow through the EGR?

Is it the EGR itself?

I know how VAG generally do it, but I've never had a D40 which complained.

Na, don't do that yourself, best take it to the garage.

Thanks for your help. Do you know if it causes any issues with the newer MOT?

Discussed quite a lot on here, but tampering with emissions control devices is illegal and subject to large fines. It won't affect the mot, and the mot tester is not allowed to dismantle anything to do the test.

From a politically correct point of view, we would suggest that you only fit a blank as part of some kind of fault finding and that you do not drive on the road with with a blanked EGR. It should go without saying that such modifications should be carried out at your own risk, and that opinions on here are just opinions.

No idea, guessing it is part of the egr. How do VAG do it?
