You could try fitting the gasket from the Ibiza 160 diesel

Its essentially a blanking plate but with a small hole in it.  Cost about £3 from a dealer

Cheaper than a remap until you can save your pennies for an egr delete kit and a remap  :smiley:

ok, that sounds good, will this affect anything that might throw up an EML?
Do you have a part number? have looked online and cant seem to find any that don't list themselves as 'blanking' even though they have a tiny hole in the middle

It's designed not to throw an EML but I can't guarantee that

Nope sorry. A Google search will throw it up though. Try Seat Ibiza egr gasket or along those lines

Ok might order one of them then. Will try to remove the inlet manifold and give that a clean first.

Clean both at the same time otherwise you won't really see the benefit of doing just the manifold. EGR is only held with on with 3 bolts  :smiley:

EGR is pretty new I think, less than 8 months old
