Default Engine seizure

Hi all, yesterday I removed the Egr valve on my 307 07 plate 1.6 HDI. Gave it a good clean out and put everything back together but when I went to re start it it tried to turn over a couple times then just stopped like I had stopped turning the key. It's now just clicking like the battery is flat but I've checked battery and all is fine? Got my brother over to help and the engine has seized? Any help as to what the hells gone wrong? Am hoping for diagnostics later today but I'm completely lost any help????? Please!!!

Diagnostic wont help if engine has seized !

Its unlikely to have seized to be honest unless you know more than we do it could be your starter has given up it could be the timing belt has snapped and locked the engine not the same as seized but to some it would apear to be seized

[QUOTE=reliable406;1876002]Diagnostic wont help if engine has seized !

Hi, timing belt hasn't snapped, as I've managed to check but even trying to bump start it just stops dead. Could the starter motor cause the engine to lockup? Brother thinks it could be water pump what do you think?

Is it possible that after mucking about with the EGR the engine has "swallowed" something and its now on the top of a piston.
What do you think reliable406?

Now they have given additional info it does sound like it is seized but i cant see how messing with the egr could do it !!

Maybe the op could elaborate on whether it was running BEFORE they messed with egr.

water pump wont stop engine turning they dont generally seize

I cant see how messing with the egr could lock up the engine either though

Just because a timing belt is still on does not mean its still timed correctly they can jump teeth.
