Hello,

I'm looking to buy an EGR blanking plate for my 1.6HDI 307 but I'm not sure which one I need? I can buy just the blanking plate on its own or I can buy the blank with the gaskets but i'm not sure if I need the gaskets? I hoping I can just buy the blanking plate because the blanking plate with the gaskets is from Poland and I will have to wait 2 weeks for it to come.

Also does anyone know if its possible to fit the blanking plate without having to loose coolant and move the diesel filter? I'm hoping if I take the battery and air filter out I should have enough room to undo the EGR bolts slightly and slide the plate in?

Thanks in advance

Fitting the blanking plate won't interfere with the coolant and diesel supplies - you're only dealing with the exhaust re-circulation circuit.

If you're struggling to get hold of a gasket, try running a small bead of temp resistant sealant round the plate. I had to bodge a mates using body sealer, and it worked a treat.

Just do as you said - remove windscreen scuttle, air filter box and battery gubbins and it's sat under where the filter box was.

I bought a plate with the cut outs for the bolts, instead of holes.

That way you can just loosen the bolts and slide the plate in.

This was on a 1.4hdi though.

just unbolt it and slide the egr blank in.

if the egr has been on for a while it may be stuck

best way is to remove the fuel filter and the bracket for the fuel filter gives you full access

i tried doing it the easy way but dropped the blank behind the engine lol

Hi
did the slide in procedure on my 1.6 after removing the fuel filter it was a dream to get to (and battery and air box too) -
Mine had a working egr before doing this so no MIL light or any problems after. (Been on about six months now)
The biggest driving difference is no engine brake anymore that i use to have just keeps on rolling...

Tech wise the oil stays clean for a couple of months instead of minutes like it use to be before :D:D:thumb:

If the egr is working you don't need to map it if the electrical side packs up you will get the management light on

Really unsatisfactory having to replace a part that doesn't get used lol

In my 207 1.4HDi, the ignition ECU complained after I fitted the blanking plate so I did the EGR delete re-map.

Really cheap, easy to do. £10 MPPS interface from the bay and someone on ecuedit.com modified the map and corrected the checksum.

Runs like a dream now, the increased power at 1500 rpm is very noticeable and the engine generally feels torquier, also the fuel consumption has improved.

I had to get a garage to do the blanking plate as it defeated my DIY skills :eek:

So the whole job cost me £70. Quite a bit better than a new valve and its a permanent fix.
