Its not a case of 'switching it off'. Its a case of finding why its on... (its there for a reason) which is why they will charge you as they will have to run a diagnostics test to find the cause.

You will still need diagnostics to reset the EGR valve adpations and clear the error codes, there is no way around this.

A modified ELM327 and interface and Forscan can do this and is cheap enough otherwise you need someone who has Ford IDS to do it.

You can't just swap a lot of parts on these engines, diagnostics is almost always required.

As above , the learnt values need resetting after fitting new egr, also why is the egr being replaced? Egr valves normally jam up / block up due to injector faults that creates excessive carbon build up which in turn blocks the egr cooler and egr then thats another egr bunged up.

Bear this in mind when fitting egr valve. Check the cooler tubes are not blocked up.
