#340772 Egr Blanked Off Or Not

Posted by orangeboy on 09 March 2014 - 09:26 PM

Just done my one this morning, 2008 1.8 TDCI. I bought a stainless steel plate with slotted holes and just loosened off the bolts on the pipe / EGR union and slipped it in. Didn't even have to remove the scuttle.


I've been a run of 50 miles or so today, and my initial experience is good - less smoke out the rear and a smoother power delivery throughout more of the power band.


And so far no EML, but I'm not counting my chickens just yet.


I, like you, was hesitant to do this, but my advice would be do it. If the worst come to the worst you can always take it back out, it's only a fiver you'll have wasted!.

I have just had to replace my headlights.


The black ones are original but have been discontinued due to " quality issues " and have been replaced with the chrome bezels.


The only option for you would be to replace the black one with a chrome one.


I got my lights form Ford Parts UK, think they cost £90 each.

+ 1 for the Lockwood's. They seem a great bit of kit and really easy to fit.


They also hide any scratches that may be already there.
