The shape of the EGR on the 8v 1.6 TDCI makes it very difficult to blank.

Is there something wrong with it?  These were much more reliable than the older type on the 16v engine.

The egr gets stuck in open and close position (according to obd2) and the car has no power, goes in to limpmode.

In that case, blanking it won't help.  The PCM will still detect that it's sticking and trigger limp mode.  You'll either need to replace it or have it mapped out.

Yes. I will map it so the engine will work properly. But where does the plug/s go?

You'd have to put the blanking plate in where you can see the flat brown gaskets on that diagram.  I'd guess the right hand one would be easiest.

Ah ok i will try that 🙂 do i need a extra gasket to get it sealed properly or is it enough with the plate?

It would be best to use a gasket each side but most people don't bother.

Doesn't blanking the EGR just put the EML permanently on? It def used to happen on my Mk1 Focus TDDI which was even more of a PITA than cleaning the EGR once a year.
