    Hi, can someone direct me to where the erg valve is...want to give it a good clean after having some over boost problems...pretty new to this, so I'd thought I'd start with that...I googled the image, just can't find the bloody thing. Thank you

    I'll take a photo off it, and post it up tonight if i can. Very easy to clean up albeit extremely filthy job!

    When you do it, you can clean the motor intake flap too, too make sure it opens and closes better.

    Since doing mine, my car turns off a lot better and just seemed to be slightly happier to breath like running with a blocked nose to running with a slightly clearer vicks nose! Placeabo? who knows and who cares...

    Sorry for the late reply, had a death in the family (sort of) so was quite busy recently.

    Heres the photos you asked for.

    ImageShack Album - 3 images

    The first photo is the EGR valve, the second is the pipe that the exhaust gases come from when being recirculated back into the inlet manifold and the third is the motor flap that should also be cleaned!

    Hope this helps.
