finally DONE my EGR valve clean [pics]
« on: 17 April 2010, 11:29 »
oks hopefully i well get round to finally cleaning out my EGR valve at long last, the sun is out the GF's out and i have no plans for the day. i well guarantee something well happen so i don't get round to it  :undecided:

any ways i ve got carb cleaner, the round seal and some long alenkeys anything else i need? or any tips etc

the only thing i am not 100% about is this hoe's which runs to the rear of the EGR valve can i just pull it out ?


this is how it looks i think after 146000+miles it may need a clean


thanks in advance  :smiley:

thanks guys,  :cool:

but i am one alenkey short and it cant be anywhere but in the engine bay  :rolleyes: got to go hunting for that today it before it dose any damage lol
so if i have to take the bumper off whist i am looking for it i think ill give the IC a clean out as i think it well be full of mank and oil as well.  :sick:

Is the IC easy to take off and clean ? or is it fiddly with all the clips etc.

Thanks

Take the front wheel off as it will give you a bit more room to put everything back on

It's a bit fiddily but easy enough to do

GOT IT !

But had to do this to get it  :angry:, but gave me an insensitive to give my IC a quick clean.



When i was taking off the IC [which was a lot easier than i thought it was going to be] and i tilted it a bit and . . . OIL just started gushing out, leaving me with a nice mess to have to clean up tomorrow.
Quick blast with carb cleaner in the IC then quick rinsed it out poped it back on.



Then one of my spring clips decided to snap so had to replaced it with a jubilee clip not a beefy one but should be oks for now going to replace all the clips when i take it off to do a proper job on it.
