If you just pull off the pipe your still left with an EGR full of oily muck where a replacement gives a much larger and smoother air flow.

I prefer the stainless steel ones but again personal preference

Just my thoughts.

you need to clean the existing egr of course, but mine has stayed clear for a year... the flow is disturbed minimally... I would also remove and clean the intercooler, pipes and inlet manifold...

I completely understand, and after the 'incident' of having the delay and then incorrect items I'll be keeping a few extras on the shelf to make sure it doesn't happen again. My apologies to all affected.

I now have a rather large shelf full of them - better to be safe than sorry!

Default EGR Bypass Kit fitting

Hello everyone!
My first post, so bear with me.
May I just check, is the EGR valve (and itís bypass kit) the same on the earlier Cdt, and the (my) later 2005 Cdti?
Iím getting confused messages from eBay at the moment.
If anyone can let me know when convenient.
Thanks Steve D

Hi Steve.
Personally i would remove the manifold along with the EGR from the car, once you have it off the car, remove the MAP sensor on the side 10mm bolt, wipe it clean with a rag with some carb cleaner on it do not poke anything into the hole.

1

2

here you can see how the MAP sensor gets blocked up, and a clean one next to it.
3

Then remove the EGR four bolts or four Allen key bolts.
4

Clean and dirty one side by side, these can be cleaned out with time and patience, use an old tooth brush with Swarfega, if the EGR is really caked in gunk, then scrap it out first with an old hack saw blade, the n do the above, very time consuming job and very messy wear gloves.
5

6

next remove the manifold seal rings they can be used again once wiped clean.
7

8

It is pointless just removing the EGR and replacing it with a by pass one as the manifold & MAP sensor will be blocked up anyway 99.9% of the time.

when you have cleaned the manifold, EGR & MAP sensor refit to the car.
9

10
The manifold can be cleaned out with oven cleaner foam, let it soak, for a few hours then jet wash it out repeat if you have to.
11

12

If our meet were still operating i carry them with me. for exchange, some with the original EGR gutted so it is a bypass EGR.
13

So if you do go for an EGR bypass as the one below, which fits the CDT or the CDTi remember you have only changed out the EGR the manifold & MAP would still be blocked up.

Egr bypass can go wrong easy enough, usual story the fluted area failing on them once messed with and then you need to do the bypass at the block.

I'm a big fan of this style myself. Comes with gasket, bolts, washers everything.

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/161815755708

It doesn't attach to the "fluted pipe" and will stop it failing using the discs included to block it off and also if you wish you can block it off at the block. Did a video showing exactly how to do it. Also the easiest to refit if chosen and has a nice spot for the egr vacume line to attach on.

https://youtu.be/M3K-g6gFbTY

And then a follow up about another car which had the other style attached by the flute and was barely a few hundred miles on before the thing gave way, and had to fit to the block and remove the egr return pipe. Thankfully it wasn't the later type with the cooler.
