Hi,

I'm wanting to clean out my egr valve as after 50k miles I'm starting to get black smoke and lower fuel economy.

I've read the guides about scraping out the valve using a screwdriver and egr cleaner whilst the valve is in situ, but being somebody who doesn't like doing things by halves, I'd prefer to remove it to clean it out properly if possible.

My car is a 2008 1.8 tdci zetec mk 2.5 facelift model.

Is it easy to remove on my car? Or is it a case of having to take half the engine to bits? Which I don't want to have to do seeing as I haven't got a clue about the workings of a diesel engine lol.

Any advice would be appreciated.

Thanks

Andy
