Do Not Sell My Personal Information

Hi all have multiple issues I'm working through on my car one of which is an EGR issue currently throwing a code that it is stuck open and is down on power so assuming maybe it is carbed up. 


I've gotten to the valve ok removed the to bolts on the back and have unclipped the metal hose clip which attaches to metal pipe BUT this pipe is seized on and I cannot for the life of me get the valve off. I've tried leaving some wd40 to soak in and hit it with a rubber mallet a few times but it doesn't seem to want to budge. 

In addition to the above I'm thinking of blanking EGR but worried it will throw an engine management code. 

Any suggestions? car is 2009 fiesta econetic 1.6 tdci


Thank you
