    EGR blanking plate

    i have just put on a EGR blanking plate on my 2007 a3 tdi 2.0 and sealed the the vacume pipe, i have done 50+ miles today and parked up when i started it up the emission light came on (i think),would it be to do with blanking the egr off or is it something else.

    i have read up on others doing this with no truble,

    i have got 73000 miles on the clock so it shouldn't need any thing major done i hope,i do a lot of motorway driving and drive it like an audi should be driven lol

    Thats an engine light not emissions light and ive done the exact same thing and have the exact same light. Granted the light will show up for many different things but i have vcds and every scan just shows insufficient flow or something along those lines. Its normal. Weirdly enough sometimes it goes if im driving around town, once ive done some hard driving or long distance it comes back up

    so if i take the blanking plate off it sould go out as it has made no dif to the car.
    i cleaned the EGR yesterday and it wasnt to bad, next thing is the inlet manifold to come off and be cleaned when it is dry down here in devon as it all ways rain

    EGR blanking plate

    Yeah as above the warning lamp will be on because off an egr flow or air flow code.
    Needs the ecu reprogrammed to remove egr.

    If you remove it the lamp will probably go out after a few starts when I realises its ok again.

    You need Part Number:028131547B from the dealer.

    Its the egr gasket that fits with a hole big enough to flow enough gasses to keep the egr light off.

    It costs about £2.50.

    Or you could drill a 7mm hole in your current gasket.

    That's the part number of the one in my eBay link.
    Depends if you've got a dealer local to you or not.

    EGR blank without the ECU remap is not a great idea. You need to tell the ECU it isn't opening the EGR, and it will then change the fuel delivery to suit

    Could you elaborate on this? How much do you charge to map out the egr?

    After the car has done 3 drive cycles without the fault I'd of thought the warning light will go off itself
