Odd that unplugging the egr does not throw up an error. Unplugging mine threw an error as soon as the car was started as I believe it checks the continuity of the connection.

Wonder if the fact it does not throw a code means it's already been mapped out ? Or there is a problem with the wiring.

My 55 plate 407 never batted an eyelid about having it's EGR valve blanked.
My newer (58) 407 spat it's dummy out, kept throwing an error code and the EML. So that is staying unblanked.

mine showed an error code about emissions,what it actually meant was the egr shaft had seized inside so the flap couldn't move and error read as ''readings out of range''....if you can get around to taking it off ,and find the shaft seized scrape of what you can on the shaft ,oil it a little and move it manually to confirm its free,this is easy when it off as theres a plastic cover to remove and all the gubbins are visible then .....its just a bugger to get the egr off the first time thats all,not quite as daunting if you need to do again though...gets easieri did the glowplugs on mine too as well as the drivers door mirror heather element was kaput,so i replaced the whole mirror as the body underneath was damaged too (s/h off ebay ). it sounds a lot of work but worth it as it runs so much better now....real smooth and no blanked off egr yet as it runs real good, so far anyway,lol:thumb:
