Now then
Just a quickie for all of you. Iv seen lennys guide to fitting a egr blanking plate to a 1.6 diesel engine. Was just wondering if the 1.8 tdci was the same. I have a mk2.5 focus on a 09 plate and after seeing how everyone rave about the egr valve blanking I'm going to order my self one. EBay seems like the best bet? Is it a difficult job? I'm not a mechanic by any standards but well willing to give it a go.
Cheers
Dave

I think its even easier on the 1.8 someone will follow soon to confirm this, EGR plate stainless steel only, not alloy or a stainless one with a 10mm hole in it. a plain stainless blanking plate, you wont be sorry you bought it, cheapest and best mod by far !!!!

Didnt have to remove any parts on mine,just undone the bolt and slipped it in,was a bit tight to get it to sit properly but get there in the end,think i did remove a pipe but it wasnt hard by any means.

Like Ben says can be done without removing the scuttle tray but a bit tight easy enough to remove scuttle tray though shouldn't take more than ten mins

Ditto, the only thing that helped was a swivel head ratchet spanner, 10mm, just back off the 2 bolts, slip it in and your done.

Sweet. Sounds easy. Gonna go ahead and order myself the plate tonight. EBay the best place? Anyway is there any videos on how to fit it. Or is it in the same place as the 1.6?
Cheers for your help people.

Now then.
Thanks for all your help. Is the egr in the same place on the 1.8 as it is on the 1.6? Daft questions I know but...
Also iv ordered the blanking plate. Looks a lot smaller than I thought it would. And also it's symmetrical..... But then I don't know how big it was supposed to be.... Haha. Gonna have a go at fitting it tomorrow hopefully if not next week some time. Sounds like a great mod. I should really start a build diary. Cheers again for your help lads.

It's on the left hand side of the engine bay(in line with the steering wheel if you're in England)mine was symmetrical too.

This is a front view ImageUploadedByFord OC1409185962.596207.jpg

This where the plate goes,although you want have the vision the picture shows unless you take the plastic off but I didn't bother. ImageUploadedByFord OC1409186034.590676.jpg
Unscrew the two bolts you can see there so that the gap is good enough to slide the plate inbetween .
Hope that helps

Just and update.
Manages to fit the blanking plate today. Did it without removing all the shuttle plate and plastic trim. Just waiting to take it for a drive to see how she is running. Well chuffed and excited. Thanks Ben for the great pics. And all of you for getting help. :-)

Hi guys, I have a focus 2.0L TDCI, & wonder if it has an Egr valve, if so what would be the benefits if I fitted one, & also what happens to the engine if it has a blanking plate fitted,( like the end of the pipe where the Egr valve is fitted to) sorry but not quite certain what the gain is, & is it legal for MOT's ??. Hope some one can help, brian

Yeah euro 4 are a nightmare in my opinion,I wouldn't buy one. If the light isn't hindering the car then just Ignore it,it's common for the light come on when you blank the egr.just the computer recognising that it isn't working .
