hi guys, i have the same-ish problem, a few weeks ago i hit a big puddle on the passengers side witch pult the EML light on 20sec later, diddent have my code reader at that point so i removed the eg blank plate (no hole), left it in the sun for the day and sure enough... light off by night time! once i got back to the workshop i found a logged code of p0490,
today after 150 flawless miles and a nice jetwash i parked her up in the works nice sunny windy car park for about 5 or 6 hours, when i finished work and went to leave the light was back! code read again P0490, i popped the blank back in and went about removing he 4 black torx bolts on the part with the push fit plug on the oppsite end, cracked it open and was surprised of see...not much! no gunk, no soot, no nothing.......am i missing somthing or does cleaning the egr mean removing the whole manifold????? , if i am missing somthing should/could ther be a"how-to" for doing this?
also, whats the reason behind the hole in the blank? is it nessasary? when i fitted mine nothing was said about this?
