    Any one removed the EGR vavle and blanked it off or know where to get the blanking plates from?

    I've done the normal set up, remove the pipe and blank the ends off.
    But there is oil starting to drip from the blanked off EGR valve.
    You can see where oil is dripping out and covering the oil feed pipe for the turbo.

    I did try the putting the blanking plate where the EGR is but they a couple of mm to big.

    Same problem here, I've taken the plate off before, cleaned all the oil back out and re-fitted, 2 weeks later the oil is slowly dripping again, damn annoying.

    Aragon, any way to test?

    I'm tempted to get two gaskets and put the together, see if that helps but I got a feeling its coming from the bolts.
    I keep meaning to try and make a blanking plate but I don't have the kit here or the metal to do it.

    Any one got any ideas?

    if it were mine, i'd have it off, thoroughly degrease with solvents, and refit it with gobs of good quality sealant, ensuring its fully cured before running the engine.

    I don't know if it helps, but I used the lid off of a cat food tin to make my blanking plates, which I cut to shape using a pair of scissors.
    Not had any issues at all.
