Hi guys, I've tried searching but only ever find bits about the 2.0 or other models. Basically I'm just trying to find out how easy it is to remove on my model car. It's taking an age to kick in throttle wise and anti pollution fault is on constantly. All error codes read EGR. I bought a blanking plate and wondered how to do it as it seems to be right at the back of the engine. Please only reply if you have knowledge of my model of car as all models are different. Thanks :)

if its electronic egr ie there is a wire on it not a vacuum pipe then the only 2 way you will get rid of the engine light is
1. blank the egr and have the ecu remaped to remove egr

2. replace the egr valve

So just blanking it off without a remap will affect it still? I'm a level 2 mechanic at college and we are doing it in there tomorrow, my lecturer seems to think removing the valve and cleaning it with petrol will sort it out, I bought the blanking plate but don't want to further damage it by not getting it remapped.

cleaning it might work, blanking it wont harm but if its causing the light it will not cure the light this is if its and electronic valve and not vacuum controlled

The light doesn't bother me. Cheers for the answers. Now to figure out how easy it is to get to. Seems a tad tricky but reachable. Unlike some other models. Thanks

I thought it was an instant fail with any of the lights stayed on?

Most definitely isn't. Part of my level 3 vehicle mechanics is an MOT course and an eml is an advisory

the egr on a 1.6 is a pig to get to on the 307. its sits right at the back. you take the airbox out of the way and then all the pipes

you will feel it but its tight. once undone you have to undo the egr clamp which isnt the easiest to line up

its much easier to undo the egr slightly and slip the blank in. if the egrs faulty this wont help and will need replacing

I can switch this off through a remap. You need to leave the big plug connected otherwise you'll get a load of other faults, but you do need to fit a blanking plate. I can then switch off the EGR function and you won't get any faults relating to it.

If you blank without editing the software you'll get an anti-pollution fault.

Thanks for all of the advice and help.
We got the valve off, for anyone who needs help with this model here's a quick how we did it guide.

We took out the MAF, pipes. Disconnected the battery and removed, we removed the windscreen wipers and scuttling next not forgetting the brake fluid reservoir needs putting to the side, this freed up so much space, next we took the air box apart in place and removed the top half followed by the bottom half. We now had a perfect view of the valve. Next we slid the fuel filter out of its sitting position and removed the metal plates behind it which is held on with 3x 8mm bolts. From there remove the two bolts holding the valve in place and unclip the clamp, ( this was a pig to put back on without the right tool, so examine it properly) our valve was absolutely blocked up with soot. We removed the black sensor and this was lagged also, and the connector inside was stuck solid not rotating. Brake cleaner and wd40 was used to clean throughly. I put a little exhaust paste on the blanking plate ( probably not needed but I wanted to) and did the whole process backwards. Jobs a good un. Now needs an EGR delete to remove the eml but already the car is running amazing and with a noticeable MPG improvement. Please excuse the lack of detail but I am very happy to message anyone with a detailed guide. Cheers!

you can however undo the engine mount and rock the engine forward if you cant be bothered the proper way

replace the air filter at the same time as its a pig

I would imagine it depends why the eml was on. Surely if the eml was on due to airbag or abs faults then it would be an instant failure.
yes you are correct on airbag and abs but on most cars now they would have separate lights. MOT have never asked me once why an eml light was on during testing.
