    astra egr

    Hi ive got a 1997 astra 1.6 ecotec x16xel- my egr valve is playing up and i want to remove and clean it. where abouts is it and can it be removed easily? do i need an allen key or torx bits to remove it. would be grateful for any help/possible picture. is it to the right of the block near the manifold? difficult to find it

    thanks again

    Isn't that only for the MK4's?

    Hemal, just search for "EGR Valve" using the search, I'm pretty sure mine is playing up too and I did that and found everything I need to know.
    Astra is coming back..bigger badder and better
    ..or is it? Thinking of buying a coupe
