I had a go at fitting the EGR Blanking plate that Stainless Dave kindly sent to members.

I thought i would take some pictures along the way to help anyone else like me, who likes to look at pictures before completing a job.

I take no responsibility for anything that you may break or bugger up by doing this, im mearly showing how i did it

Tools : -

Flat Bladed Screwdriver,
14mm Socket
Decent solid ratchet
10mm Spanner
Copper Grease

WD40 Optional but i didn't use it
Hammer Optional but again i didn't use one :)

Find the EGR Gasket on both sides,
Drivers...

Passenger...

Remove top cover for better access, Undo the 2x 10mm bolts

Its still held down by 2 rubber gromits at the back so just pull straight up.

You can then see the EGR pipe clearly

I then removed the Turbo pipe to get a better look at the passenger side Gasket

(If anyone knows what the item ive starred is, can you let me know? also is it ok to remove as it would be easier to remove the EGR is this was moved?)

As you can see with Turbo pipe removed you can get alot closer.

Now undo the 2 x 14mm Bolts on the drivers side **CAUTION, these are extremely tight, reading over the forum some people recommend tapping your ratchet with a hammer to "shock" it, others a little WD40 (not overly keen on this with it being somewhere that gets hot but let me know)
For this reason i used a 14mm 6 Point socket rather than a multi fitment, and this did job nicely.

This is where i got too... I went to fit the blanking plate i got from Stainless Dave, Its the wrong size and shape :( So refitted the bolts with some copper grease to make it easier next time :D

I had a look on the passenger side too and its wrong for that side too.

Not the right shape or size :( by StateyD40, on Flickr


So when i get the correct size i will continue the write up, but i hope this so far helps someone.
I haven't yet had a go undoing the passenger side but for anyone that has done this before, would it be easier to remove the radiator pipe thats near it and also the part ive put a * on the pictures?

Thanks All
Statey

I had the same problem with mine bought one from ebay without checking then had to buy another doh. My egr's the same shape as yours new plate cost 4.99 I only removed the two bolts on the drivers side so I could squeeze the plate in, is there a reason for removing the other bolts? mines been running fine since (3 weeks) tbh i haven't noticed much difference, but I had no problems to begin with just wanted to stop all the **** getting into the manifold.

this is better than school! :)

it's easier to undo the driver side bolts, slip in the blanking plate, put copper grease on the bolts, and tighten. job done. :thumbright:

this should lessen unwanted **** back to the engine. :D

How hard are those drivers side bolts on the egr to get out? I fancy blanking mine off, but I saw another thread somewhere with what looked like snapped or partly hacksawed off bolts. I can't afford to cause expensive problems on my Nav at the minute.

Mines a Euro 3 same as yours.

Cheers

I did not use a torque wrench so I don't know the exact pressure but they're quite stubborn little fellas. :lol:

What I did was sprayed on some WD-40, and used a rubber mallet to hit the handle of the wrench. Let the WD-40 sink in for about 5 minutes since the bolts were a bit rusty.
