Ive got the job of implementing 5's in the workplace starting with the consumable stores,
Having made a right hash of trying to fit mine (Fiesta), I look at what I was doing and if there was an easier way of achieving the same thing. The main issue was the lower bottom bolt, with limited clearance and a snowballs chance in hell to refit if it fell out, maked life very difficult for myself and my fat fingered friends.
So it occurred to me while I had the EGR pipe in my hands is that since us Fiesta peeps are blanking the left hand side of the vent pipe (picture below 9D477A), why not blank both the EGR exit and inlet entrance with a plate and remove the pipe altogether and the need for an awkward contortionist act. All it needs is someone who has an A in metal work to shape the plates and make a buck or too.
Granted there are those have had no issues fitting the plate in the normal way but my life would have so much easier this way.
I hate you EGR pipe!!
I was told "anything we don't use chuck it out"
So I got consent to remove some 3mm high grade Stainless steel oval plates
A total of 45 plates
75mm longest point of oval
48mm at the widest point of oval
Ideal for egr blanking if shaped
